RALEIGH, N.C. – Donald Trump supporters in Raleigh started lining up before dawn Tuesday morning.

The presumptive Republican nominee is set to speak at Duke Energy Center at 7 p.m.

It’s Trump’s third time in North Carolina since March.

Meanwhile, President Obama campaigned with Hillary Clinton in Charlotte Tuesday afternoon. It’s the first time campaigning together since he endorsed her.

Clinton’s top aides believe North Carolina is the biggest must-win for Trump — and their best chance to flip a state that Mitt Romney won in 2012. Clinton first deployed general election staff to North Carolina in late April and their first ads in the state began running in June.

The campaign events come after FBI Director James Comey slammed the Clinton’s email practices in brutal terms.

The findings of the FBI probe immediately detonated on the campaign trail with Trump crying foul.

“The system is rigged. … Very very unfair! As usual, bad judgment,” Trump tweeted. He later issued a statement in which he claimed U.S. “adversaries almost certainly have a blackmail file on Hillary Clinton,” which he said “disqualifies” her from the presidency.
