Gilmore Drops Out of Race

Former Virginia Governor, and Republican presidential candidate, Jim Gilmore has announced that he is suspending his presidential candidacy. Gilmore told The Politico's Mike Allen that he is dropping out of the race "Because of the front-loading of the primaries, I would have basically had to stop campaigning and spend full time organizing hundreds of people to raise money for me." Gilmore said that he will now establish a PAC and focus on electing Republicans to the Virginia legislature. Gilmore had visited New Hampshire three times and was polling at near zero percent.
