RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina supporters of Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush are aiming to give him a financial push during his visit to Raleigh.

Backers of the former Florida governor planned a private luncheon reception for Bush’s campaign Friday at the home of Jim Cain - an attorney, longtime GOP fundraiser and former ambassador to Denmark.

Bush has been struggling to gain traction in the race for the GOP nomination behind current national poll leaders Ben Carson and Donald Trump. Bush’s campaign has been retooling through staff cuts, spending reductions and a “Jeb Can Fix It” tour in New Hampshire this week.

Primary voting begins in about three months. The North Carolina primary is March 15.
