Former President Bill Clinton received loud welcome from a crowd of 4,000 at a rally in a Raleigh park Sunday afternoon as he criss-crossed the country stumping for President Barack Obama during the final days of the 2012 campaign.

— Former President Bill Clinton is coming to North Carolina early next month to attend some private fundraisers to benefit his wife's presidential campaign.

A Greensboro fundraiser for Hillary Clinton's campaign will be held the afternoon of Dec. 7 at the home of Randall Kaplan, an entrepreneur and chairman of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro's Board of Trustees, and his wife, Kathy Manning, an attorney and arts philanthropist.

The location of the Raleigh fundraiser the evening of Dec. 7 wasn't disclosed.

Both invitations seek donations of at least $500. Those who give $2,700 – the maximum allowed during the primary season – can get a photo with the former president, while people who help raise even more can attend a special reception with him.

North Carolina's Democratic presidential primary is March 15.
