Former President Bill Clinton will be in Raleigh on Friday, but he’ll be here for meetings and fundraisers that aren’t open to the public.
A post on Hillary Clinton’s campaign website on Wednesday said Bill Clinton planned to “discuss the pipeline from college to full-time employment.” The post didn’t include further details but provided a link for supporters to sign up to attend.
The post was deleted Wednesday night. A Clinton campaign spokesman said Thursday that the visit from Bill Clinton would be “for fundraising events and political meetings.”
Raleigh entrepreneur Brooks Bell, who spoke at the Democratic National Convention, said last week that she’d be among the hosts for a Bill Clinton fundraiser.
Bill Clinton’s visit wraps up a busy week on the presidential campaign trail in North Carolina. Republican Donald Trump’s running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, spoke in Raleigh on Thursday morning. And Clinton’s vice presidential candidate, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, was in Greensboro on Wednesday.
