Trump went to Fayetteville, a city in North Carolina's 9th Congressional District, on Monday (September 9) to rally Republican supporters in a repeat election of a 2018 contest that was tainted by fraud.
Both Republicans and Democrats expect Tuesday's election to be close and to provide clues about what might happen in presidential and congressional elections next year.
Republican Dan Bishop, a 55-year-old state senator who has embraced Trump's policies and some of his political tactics is facing 36-year-old Democrat Dan McCready, a small-businessman and U.S. Marine Corps veteran in Tuesday's race.
"I share your values.
I'm not ashamed of your values.
I'm going to defend your values in Washington, D.C.," Bishop said at the rally, calling Trump a "great fighter" against "socialist" Democrats.
Opinion polling indicates a tight race, with turnout an important factor.
The result will not affect the balance of power in the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives.
