Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton made her first campaign stop in North Carolina since the end of the primary season.
She told several thousand supporters at the Exposition Center at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds in Raleigh that if elected, she would launch a job creation plan during her first hundred days in office.
She said the program of incentives and investment would be paid for in part by taxing the super rich.
"Let's ask the wealthiest Americans to pay more, including new tax on multi-millionaires," Clinton said. "That's not only the right thing to do, it's smart for our economy, because these steps will help pay for the investment we need."
Presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump held a similar rally in Greensboro last week.
Clinton pledged no new tax increases for the middle class and vowed to raise the federal minimum wage. She also laid out a plan to lessen the burden of student loans.
