State Rep. Elizabeth Fetterhoff is holding a campaign fundraiser later this month.

The event will be held Sept. 26 at Persimmon Hollow in DeLand, 111 West Georgia Ave, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Those looking to attend can pass along an RSVP to Katie Ballard.

Her 2018 run was a nail biter. After a manual recount, just 61 votes separated the freshman Republican and former Democratic Rep. Patrick Henry.

The House District 26 lawmaker hasn’t drawn an opponent for the 2020 contest — yet.

But in advance of what could be another tight race, her reelection campaign has gotten off to a solid start on the fundraising trail.

Through the end of August, she had raised more than $63,000 in hard money and had about $52,000 in the bank. She has another $3,700 in her affiliated political committee, United for Florida’s Future.

HD 26 covers a piece of Volusia County, including DeLand, Daytona Beach, South Daytona and Holly Hill.

Though the most recent bookclosing report from the Florida Division of Elections shows Democrats hold a 10-point edge in voter registrations, the past couple cycles have prove the district is quite competitive.

Henry defeated Republican Michael Cantu in 2016 by 6 points, and former Rep. Dwayne Taylor defeated Cantu by the same margin in 2014.

Still, the seat was only narrowly carried by Hillary Clinton in the last presidential election — she edged out Donald Trump by less than a point.

The fundraiser invitation is below.
