Former Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum‘s next act appears to be a voter registration drive aimed at putting together a Democratic voter base to help defeat President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.

Gillum, the former mayor of Tallahassee, has, for weeks, been advancing a “major announcement” set for Wednesday at Florida Memorial University in Miami Gardens. The announcement is coming at an RSVP event, with the doors opening at 5 p.m.

As first reported Wednesday by Politico and confirmed by Florida Politics, Gillum intends to lay out the framework for a voter registration program under the flag of a newly-formed “Bring it Home Florida,” using his gubernatorial campaign’s slogan. As noted by Politico, Gillum still has almost $4 million left unspent from his campaign’s unofficial political committee, Forward Florida.

In January a not-for-profit organization, Bring it Home Florida Inc., was registered with the Florida Secretary of State.

Gillum has been both teasing and brushing aside speculation that he might launch a candidacy for president.  He’s also been followed by ethics complaints that had haunted him during the campaign andremained long after he lost the election to Republican now-Gov. Ron DeSantis.
