Donald Trump supporters wait to enter the Greensboro Coliseum Special Events Center for a rally on June 14, 2016.

President Donald Trump is returning to North Carolina this week to rally voters as two Republicans face close congressional races.Trump's campaign staff announced he will appear Friday night at Bojangles Coliseum in Charlotte as part of his midterm campaign tour to promote Republicans in congressional races.

Incumbent Republican Rep. Ted Budd and GOP candidate Mark Harris are both touting the rally on social media. Trump also visited North Carolina to promote the two in August.

Harris, who unseated an incumbent in the Republican primary, faces Democrat Dan McCready in November in the race to represent a district stretching from the Charlotte area toward Fayetteville.

Budd, meanwhile, faces Democrat Kathy Manning in the race for a district that includes suburban and rural areas south and west of Winston-Salem and Greensboro.
