After a long and contentious campaign that started in June 2015, Donald Trump makes his final appeals to the public on the day before the presidential election. His second to last stop on the campaign trail is Raleigh, North Carolina, a state with a very divided electorate where both candidates have been polling at a dead-heat over the last few days. Trump has made over a half-dozen appearances in North Carolina in the last two weeks of the campaign.

Trump was very clear of his intention to draw women voters who showed up in force, along with many young supporters and families. Approximately 5000 people attended the event, a crowd that was lively, but not overly raucous as it has been in previous Trump events in North Carolina. Special guest, Mike Huckabee waved to the crowd and posed for photos, but oddly did not come to the stage when beckoned by Trump, who spoke for around 45 minutes.
