Former President Bill Clinton is holding a fundraiser for North Carolina Rep. Heath Shuler. Clinton will speak at North Carolina State University on Jan. 26 and then attend a lunch fundraiser for Shuler in Raleigh.

Shuler is serving his second term and in N.C's 11th District.

Clinton has helped Shuler previously. The former president reached out to the former NFL quarterback during his 2006 run for Congress.

Clinton also attended Shuler's church the weekend before North Carolina's primary this year.

Shuler endorsed Clinton's wife, former New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, in her run for president because she won the primary in his district.
