North Carolina is expected to play a significant role in the 2024 election as a swing state. Ahead of the GOP speeches, President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden will be visiting the state on Friday.

The former president’s speech will close the convention during the “Grand Old Party Dinner.” It comes a day after the Justice Department unsealed a 37-count indictment with charges relating to conspiracy, withholding documents, and obstruction of justice.

Trump is the first former president in U.S. history to be indicted on federal criminal charges. Mishandling of classified government materials is a felony crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison. Obstruction of justice is also a felony, with a maximum prison sentence of 20 years.
