LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Former President Bill Clinton has stumped for his wife, Hillary, during a campaign stop in Las Cruces, five days ahead of the primary election in New Mexico.

Clinton never mentioned presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump by name Thursday.

But the former president made numerous references to the importance of bringing people together and the dangers of playing one group against another.

Clinton also never mentioned Bernie Sanders - Hillary’s Democratic opponent in Tuesday’s presidential primary in New Mexico - except to compare their plans for college students.

Bill Clinton says Hillary’s plan is more practical because the Sanders plan relies on state funding that may not be available.

About 500 supporters filled the Picacho Middle School gymnasium for the event. There were no visible protesters inside or outside the venue.
