Hillary Clinton Early Vote Event in Charlotte, North Carolina

Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. - another Clinton surrogate who's a hit with millennials - to North Carolina to campaign in the university-rich Triangle on Tuesday.

The UNC-Charlotte event on early voting will start at 5:30 p.m.at the Belk Plaza.

The suspected supporter of Republican nominee Donald Trump was arrested for civil assault and charged with a misdemeanor, local authorities told CNN, adding that the victim did not need medical attention after the attack at the Charlotte event. "I think our economy is going to be much more stable under Clinton".

"He knows that discrimination is not only wrong - guess what, it is bad for business", Clinton said of Cooper and House Bill 2, the so-called bathroom bill, that GOP Gov. She touched on a variety of growth areas such as advanced manufacturing, small businesses, clean energy and internet access.

Later in the day, at an outdoor rally in Raleigh, Clinton looked beyond Trump and began arguing in favor of key down-ballot Democrats, casting them as the kind of people she needs to be able to get things done if she wins the presidency. She'll appear at the Raleigh event with women who have lost their children to gun violence in police-related instances. Clinton was introduced by Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin; Gwen Carr, mother of Eric Garner; and Lucia McBath, mother of Jordan Davis. Those attending the rally cheered when Clinton spoke about early voting, criminal justice reform, and improving public education.

Clinton also framed voting as a way of standing up for values and rights. She said she wants to create jobs by deploying half a million solar panels in the next four years.

Clinton's North Carolina stop follows a day of campaigning in Pennsylvania, another battleground state. She also attacked incumbent Republican Senator Richard Burr for being "afraid to stand up against Donald Trump". She'll be campaigning with First Lady Michelle Obama. However, she singled out Trump's recent refusal to categorically say he would accept the results of the election, saying it was unprecedented and a threat to democracy.

The first event was held at Saint Augustine's University in Raleigh.
