Gillum to make 'major announcement' in Miami

Ron DeSantis isn't the only around here making "major announcements."

Andrew Gillum, who narrowly lost the Florida governor's race to DeSantis in November, announced Friday morning that he's coming to Miami this month to make ... an announcement.

Gillum sent out an email to supporters saying he'll be in South Florida March 20. He didn't explain the reason for the occasion or the exact location, but alluded to statements he's made since his gubernatorial loss about continuing to make use of the organization that brought him to the brink of the governor's mansion.

"This fight is about the future of our state and our nation. I’m not going anywhere — and I know neither are you. We have to stand strong and speak out," he said.

Gillum quickly released a video teasing the appearance. It was distributed by his political committee, Forward Florida, which still had close to $4 million in its coffers at the end of January.
