ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Former President Bill Clinton is participating in a campaign event for North Carolina Rep. Heath Shuler.
Clinton is scheduled to appear with the Democratic lawmaker Thursday in Asheville. Shuler is seeking re-election in the 11th District covering western North Carolina.
Shuler holds a large fundraising advantage for the final weeks of the race, reporting more than $1.2 million to spend at the beginning of October. He faces Republican challenger Jeff Miller, who reported having just $100,000.
Shuler is one of several Democratic incumbents in North Carolina who are locked in closely watched congressional races as Republicans try to regain control of the U.S. House.
