Palm Beach billionaire Jeff Greene filed papers last Friday to run for Florida governor, but he hasn’t made any public statements since and it’s not clear whether he’ll participate a pair of upcoming Democratic debates.

Democrats Andrew Gillum, Gwen Graham, Chris King and Philip Levine plan to attend a Saturday debate in Pinellas County and a Monday debate in Miramar.

“We wish we knew” whether Greene is participating, said Vickie Dunn, whose Indivisible FL 13 group is organizing Saturday’s forum along with Women’s March Florida and Fired Up Pinellas. “We’ve made all kinds of efforts to contact him. We’ve set up our logistics so we can accommodate and we’re getting nothing back.”

Saturday’s debate runs from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and can be viewed at http://www.baynews9.com or http://www.mynews13.com.

Monday’s debate is being organized by the Service Employees International Union and other groups. The SEIU’s Eunic Ortiz said Tuesday that organizers had not heard from Greene.
