Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine of Virginia will be in Maine for a private fundraiser on Thursday, according to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

A campaign spokeswoman confirmed the event on Wednesday, but she didn’t have a location or other details, saying they were forthcoming. But Kaine, a U.S. senator from Virginia, won’t appear publicly.

It will mark Kaine’s first appearance in Maine during the campaign. Clinton hasn’t been here since a small rally in Portland last September, while Republican nominee Donald Trump held his third rally in Maine last month.

Maine has been a Democratic state in presidential elections since 1992, but polling is showing a tightening race between Clinton and Trump. The state may his best chance to win in territory easily won by President Barack Obama in 2012, due largely in part to its heavily old and white population.

A poll released Tuesday by The Boston Globe and Colby College found that Clinton led Trump by just three points statewide, with Trump holding a 10-point lead in Maine’s rural and more conservative 2nd Congressional District, which is worth one electoral college vote. Past polls have shown a bigger statewide lead for Clinton.
