Palm Beach real estate tycoon Jeff Greene has filed to run for governor as a Democrat.
Green, a billionaire who ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate in 2010, filed papers Friday, according to state records. He acknowledged his interest in resurrecting his political career in April in an interview with the Palm Beach Post.
Greene enters an already crowded Democratic primary field that already features Andrew Gillum, Gwen Graham, Chris King and Philip Levine. Patrick Murphy, a former congressman from Jupiter, is also mulling a run and has been raising money.
Levine, the former Miami Beach mayor, has led polls thanks largely to investing nearly $8 million of his own dollars into a TV ad blitz. Greene's plan likely includes investing his own money, considering he put millions into his campaign when he took 31 percent of the vote and lost to former congressman Kendrick Meek.
