Jim Gilmore drops out

Jim Gilmore was a candidate I was certainly considering. Unfortunately the most qualified to be president aren't always the top candidates. I hope he stays active and makes a comeback in Virginia. Senator Gilmore sounds good.

From the Politico

Former Virginia Gov. James S. Gilmore III is dropping his underdog bid for the Republican presidential nomination today, he told The Politico in an interview.

Gilmore said he has been approached about running for Virginia governor a second time, and about running for U.S. Senate if Sen. John W. Warner (R) retires. Gilmore said he will consider both options. Reflecting his long-held interest in Old Dominion politics, he said he will start a political action committee to support Republicans running for the state senate and House of Delegate
