President’s Day will be beneficial for a political committee of state Sen, Travis Hutson, with an evening fundraiser expected to raise half a million dollars.

President’s Day will be beneficial for a political committee of state Sen. Travis Hutson, with a fundraiser expected to raise more than $500,000.

Hutson’s First Coast Business Foundation committee will be the beneficiary of the event, which will serve as a reload opportunity for the committee, tapped after an active 2018.

This event will see many of northeast Florida’s power players on hand.

Chairing the event are Jacksonville’s David and Jodi CoxwellDavid and Nancy Hutson, and Randy and Paula Ringhaver.

The Ringhavers are hosting the St. Augustine event.

The co-chairs are also major names in the region, including developer Mori Hosseini and lobbyist Marty Fiorentino and Ali Korman Shelton and Jamie Shelton of bestbet.

The host committee includes Gary and Nancy Chartrand, along with Husein and LeAnna Cumber, showing further evidence that Hutson’s reach extends deep into Jacksonville power centers.

Hutson plans a golf event later this week, which will also bring in money; however, the Monday event is the big one, with ramifications both for the GOP’s desire to hold its Senate majority and for Hutson himself demonstrating strength as he vies for future caucus leadership personally.

Hutson represents Senate District 7, a Republican sinecure extending from St. Johns to Volusia Counties.

His committees include Appropriations, Judiciary, and Rules, and he chairs the budget subcommittee on Transportation, Tourism, and Economic Development.
