Clinton returns to the campaign trail with North Carolina rally

After taking the first half of the week off to recover from pneumonia, Hillary Clinton is back on the campaign trail Thursday. "I'm feeling great," Clinton said as she offered a brief greeting to the press aboard her campaign plane; she will do a press Q&A aboard the plane later Thursday, during which she promised to detail her activities over her last three days off the trail.

First, though, Clinton will speak at a rally in North Carolina, a state CNN noted is becoming "increasingly important" for Clinton as polls this week have showed Donald Trump pulling ahead in the battleground states of Ohio and Florida.
