WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Former Florida Governor and current presidential candidate Jeb Bush will be in Wilmington Saturday for a campaign fundraiser.

The reception will take place at the Landfall home of Neill Currie, former President and CEO of Renaissance Re, which according to its website provides insurance and reinsurance to its customers. Federal Election Commission records show Currie as a major contributor to Bush’s Right to Rise political action committee.

An invitation to the event, posted on Bush’s campaign website, says the reception with the candidate is scheduled for 3:15 p.m. It lists two donation levels: $2,700 for a “#AllInForJeb Supporter,” and $1,000 to be an “Attendee.” It does not have any details about whether Bush will make any public appearances. Emails to the campaign seeking the information have not been returned.

Bush is one of 17 major Republican candidates seeking the nomination for President. Published reports say he will be appearing at two events in New York on Saturday, in Quogue and Sagaponak, before his scheduled appearance in Wilmington.
