LELAND, NC (WECT) -

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s vice-presidential running mate Mike Pence will visit the Cape Fear area Wednesday.

According to the Trump campaign website, Pence will host a rally at Manufacturing Methods, a fabrication and assembly facility in Leland, on Wednesday at 3 p.m.  Doors will open at noon.

Tuesday afternoon, the Trump website had the ticket link removed for the event.  Remember, the tickets given out are done on a first come first serve basis, so you still have to show up early to get admitted to the event. 

Manufacturing Methods is located at 9244 Industrial Blvd. in Leland. 

Pence’s trip comes two weeks after Trump held a campaign rally in Trask Coliseum on UNC Wilmington’s campus.

Thousands showed up, quickly filling Trask’s 5,200-seat capacity, with several thousand more, including both supporters and protesters, outside.

WECT's Connor DelPrete is sitting down with the Brunswick County Republican Party to discuss expectations for Wednesday afternoon's campaign stop.
