Sen. Bill Nelson is gearing up for a dogfight with Gov. Rick Scott at the ballot box in 2018, and in that context comes a Friday fundraiser in Jacksonville.
Nelson’s fundraiser costs $500 to attend, $1,000 to host, $2,700 to chair. And offering added incentive, Democratic donors will get a chance to meet first-term California Senator Kamala Harris.
Harris is one of many potential Democratic candidates for president in 2020 who, when polled against President Donald Trump, came out ahead.
The Nelson fundraiser will be at the home of House District 15 hopeful Tracye Polson, who is making a bid to turn Republican Rep. Jay Fant‘s district from red to blue.
Harris will be the second potential Democratic Presidential hopeful to appear at Polson’s house as a special guest for a fundraiser in recent weeks; former HUD Secretary Julian Castro came to town for a Duval Democrats’ fundraiser at the same address in October.
