Florida is ready to Feel the Bern once more -- Vermont Sen. and former Democratic presidential primary candidate Bernie Sanders is heading to the Sunshine State later this month, according to a release from the Democratic National Committee.
Sanders will be coming to Florida as part of the DNC's effort to turn historically red and "purple" states blue once more.
Florida falls into the latter category, going red for President Donald Trump last year after voting for the Democratic Party in 2008 and 2012.
According to a press release, both Sanders and DNC Chair Tom Perez will travel to nine different states to champion raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, combating climate change, pay equity for women and making colleges and universities tuition free.
Other rallies will be held in Arizona, Kentucky, Maine, Montana, Nebraska and Utah.
The tour begins April 17 and will continue for a week, but specific city stops have not yet been mentioned.
Sanders' joining Perez is notable since he openly backed Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison during the DNC chair vote in February.
Sanders campaigned heavily in Florida last year to nab the Democratic nomination but ultimately lost out to Hillary Clinton, who received 64 percent of the primary vote.
