Andrew Gillum has launched a Florida voter registration group dedicated to defeating President Donald Trump’s re-election chances in the nation’s largest swing state.
The former Tallahassee mayor and Democratic nominee for governor is expected to formally announce the effort today at a speech in Miami Gardens. One of the groups working with Gillum — Bring it Home Florida, named after his signature campaign phrase — was registered last week by his supporters with the state election division overseeing third-party voter registration organizations.
The article goes on to state the following:
Meanwhile, the Florida Democratic Party says it will spend $2 million in the next year to register 200,000 voters ahead of next year’s presidential primary. Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Terrie Rizzo said the party has not “dedicated enough resources” to registering voters in recent years. There are currently 4.96 million registered Democrats in the state compared to 4.7 million Republicans and nearly 3.6 million voters with no party affiliation.
No Andrew Gillum is not running for President. As Politico reports, he’s expected to announce a voter focused imitative to help Dems win Florida in 2020.

A Florida source told me it’s a goal of 1 million new voters and bringing voters who didn’t vote in ’16 or ’18 back into the fold, aimed at minority and low propensity voters, which includes recently re-enfranchised voters. https://t.co/1jF4PslU4V
