Ivanka Trump will visit North Carolina, Arizona, Texas and Florida over four days to participate in campaign events, including a fundraiser in Texas, according to a campaign official. She will host a “fireside chat” in Wilmington, N.C., on Monday, her second stop in the state over the past week. 

Trump has also made North Carolina — a swing state he won in 2016 — a key priority as polls show a tight race between him and Democratic nominee Joe BidenJoe BidenBiden to meet with 6 GOP senators next week Arizona secretary of state gets security detail over death threats surrounding election audit On The Money: Five takeaways on a surprisingly poor jobs report | GOP targets jobless aid after lackluster April gain MORE. The president has traveled there several times in recent weeks.


The trips represent a significant increase in Ivanka Trump’s campaign travel as the November election nears. Her appearances in Arizona, Texas and Florida also underscore the importance of Trump holding onto those states, all of which he won in his first race for the White House. 

Ivanka Trump delivered a speech at the Republican National Convention late last month, where she portrayed her father as having achieved what he set out to do in his first four years while championing some of her own policy priorities, including work on human trafficking and support for working women. 

Ivanka Trump’s trips also come as the president struggles to win over suburban female voters, a group that could be key to Trump holding onto some of these battleground states. 

President Trump will also be in Arizona on Monday, where he will host a “Latinos for Trump” roundtable in Phoenix. The visit marks the final stop on a three-state swing for official and campaign business that also included stops in Nevada and California. 

A new survey released Monday morning by Phoenix-based OH Predictive Insights shows Biden leading Trump by a double-digit margin in Arizona. A Democratic presidential candidate has not won in Arizona since 1996. 

An NBC News-Marist survey released last week showed a tied race in Florida, with Biden underperforming among the state’s Latino population compared with 2016 but outperforming with seniors. 

Nationally, Biden holds a sizable lead over Trump, according to recent polls, with the election less than two months away.
