Hillary Clinton will bring her presidential campaign to Gastonia on Saturday, holding a “get out the vote” rally at the Rotary Centennial Pavilion downtown.
Clinton’s visit comes three days before North Carolina’s primary election Tuesday. She and her chief rival, Barack Obama, have crisscrossed the state as they battle for the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination.

Saturday’s scheduled event by Clinton marks the first visit to Gaston County by either candidate. Clinton’s husband, former President Clinton, campaigned for his wife at Highland School of Technology five weeks ago, drawing 600 supporters to the school in Gastonia.
