Red but not really into this Trump's America thing: Union County, North Carolina, where voters have a chance to send Trump a dispiriting message

He’s not on the ballot, but Trump has jumped into NC’s 9th District race. Will it work?  (Charlotte Observer, 9/7/2019)
Trump is scheduled to fly to Fayetteville Monday night for a rally with Bishop. Vice President Mike Pence plans to hold an event earlier in the day at Wingate University in Union County. Donald Trump Jr. headlined a fundraiser last week in Monroe.. 
Polls show Bishop and McCready locked in a tight race in a district Trump won by 12 points in 2016 and which no Democrat has won since 1963. Analysts rate it a toss-up, especially with an expected low turnout. Libertarian Jeff Scott and Green Party candidate Allen Smith are also running.
