Prepare to "Feel the Bern" once again – Vermont senator and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is officially heading to Florida.

On April 17, Sanders will begin an eight-state rally with DNC Chair Tom Perez in an effort to regain footing for the Democratic party in "red" and "purple" states, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The rallies will address topics such as minimum wage, women's pay, college tuition, immigration, climate change and tax reform.

States that Sanders will visit include Maine, Kentucky, Florida, Nebraska, Utah, Montana, Arizona and Nevada.

So far, no official dates or times for each state have been set.
