RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton will be in North Carolina later this month raising money for her campaign.

A scheduled July 22 fundraiser at the home of a Raleigh couple marks her first political appearance in the state since a campaign-launching rally last month in New York.

The invitation for what’s called “a conversation in support of Hillary for America” seeks donations of $2,700 per person, the maximum allowed individuals during the primary campaign. A special reception with Clinton is available to those who help raise at least $15,000 in campaign cash.

North Carolina’s 2016 presidential primary is likely to get more attention from candidates because it’s about two months earlier than in the past. The exact date primary may be changed by the General Assembly.
