With nearly $4 million left unspent in his campaign's unofficial political committee's war-chest, Politico reports, former Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum appears to be ready to launch a voter registration drive.

Calling it a "major announcement," for weeks, the former Tallahassee mayor has dangled what many have assumed to be a potential bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. 

However, Gillum reportedly intends to kickoff a voter registration program in Florida. Borrowing from his 2018 campaign slogan, the organization will be called "Bring It Home Florida."

Bring It Home Florida Inc., a not-for-profit organization, was registered with the Florida Secretary of State earlier this year.

The official announcement will take place at Florida Memorial University in Miami Gardens today. RSVPs are required. Doors open at 5 p.m.
