Lincoln Chafee will make an announcement about the future of his presidential campaign on Friday, he said in a tweet on Thursday. 

The former Rhode Island governor is scheduled to speak at the Democratic National Committee's Women's Leadership Forum.

Earlier this week, NPR reported that only 10 people have contributed $200 or more to Chafee's campaign. The 30 percent of Chafee's big budget supporters that NPR interviewed contributed a meager $15,000 to his campaign. $4,100 of that sum came from his own pocket. 

For comparison, Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson has raised some $20 million. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton snagged about $45 million in the second quarter of 2015 and added another $28 million in the third. And Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is sitting on tens of millions himself.

According to HuffPollster, Chafee is polling at .4% in recent Democratic 2016 polls.

What does the future hold? We'll know soon enough.
