Governor Rick Scott says he will make a big announcement in two weeks and tweeted on Monday that he would make the announcement on social media.
Many political analysts say it is the state's worst kept secret  The expectation is that the governor will announce that he is running for Bill Nelson's seat in the US Senate.
His tweet came moments after his chief of staff Jackie Schutz had announced to leave.
She's gone to Scott's 2014 election campaign. There is speculation, she is now planning to lead his Senate campaign.
"Well, Jackie has been chosen with me since mine, She's my Chief of Staff She's leaving now Brad Piepenbrink is my new Chief of Staff I'll make a big announcement in two weeks April 9th It's going to be a fun time "Scott said.
The governor said he would make his announcement live on Facebook.
When pressed, he did not give up his secret.
"I think you all should come, it's going to be a fun day," Scott said.
"I am almost convinced that the governor will announce that he is running for the seat of the US Senate," said GOP Political Consultant Terry Miller.
Miller left no room for speculation. He said the announcement on Facebook was smart.
"Social media has become a major part of American life, and it's a productive way to bring your message to as many people as possible," said Miller.
Democrats are convinced that Scott Senator Bill Nelson will challenge.
"It's a very tough competition because it has a lot of money and it will be tough there," said Lee Democratic leader Yoseph Tedros.
A poll from Quinnipiac University last month showed Nelson ahead of Scott in a match of the two.
Democrats say the recent movement over gun control leans the race to Nelson's favor.
"I think we have a tailwind, and I think that if you look at what happened this weekend and look at all movements, the Democrats are full of energy," predicted Tedros.
The question now is whether the momentum will last until November.
There was another sign that Scott will do so by announcing his bid for the Senate; The Republican Senate Committee posted an online ad Monday linking Nelson to Hillary Clinton.
A sign that things are heating up in a race that is just getting warm.
