    ormer Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore announced he is suspending his campaign for president. "My campaign was intended to offer the gubernatorial experience, with the track record of a true conservative, experienced in national security, to unite the party." Gilmore said, "My goal was to focus on the importance of this election as a real turning point, and to emphasize the dangers of continuing on a road that will further undermine America's economy and weaken our national security."

    OK, so Hillary's been a bad little sociopath. She let an ambassador and three other Americans get brutalized and murdered. She feels nothing for them. She just knows what she wants and that is the Presidency. What she deserves is to be prosecuted and jailed. Enter Jim Gilmore. Gilmore worked as a prosecutor. He also worked in Army counterintelligence. So he knows what he's talking about when it comes to Benghazi. He's a natural born citizen by any definition. He's a veteran. He's got executive experience and is a very solid conservative. Why are we not considering Jim Gilmore? Do...

    It doesn’t matter to Jim Gilmore that only 12 Iowans voted for him during Monday night’s caucuses. “We didn’t expect any vote in Iowa because we didn’t ask for any votes in Iowa,” the former Virginia governor said during a phone interview Thursday. “I’m starting the campaign in New Hampshire where I am right now.” Gilmore, 66, has received little or no support in recent voter polls nationally or in New Hampshire. He acknowledged that some have made light of his long shot bid for the White House. But he stresses he’s dead serious. “I am the right candidate. I...

Gilmore filed paperwork earlier this week with the Federal Election Commission. His announcement comes one week before the first Republican primary debate, hosted by Fox News and Facebook. Gilmore, a former Army intelligence officer, served as Virginia's governor from 1998 to 2002.

The committee is airing an ad on Richmond television that calls into question whether Warner will uphold Virginia's status as a right-to-work state. The ad notes Warner has not come out against the Employee Free Choice Act, which would make it easier for workers to unionize. Gilmore is a strong opponent of the proposal. Gilmore also received a boost today when he picked up an endorsement from the Richmond Times Dispatch. Although the...

Some Virginia GOP elders have endorsed his opponent. Pollsters have him trailing by 25 percentage points - or worse. So what keeps him going? The answer may lie - at least in part - in the former governor's pugnacious personality, what he's done, and where he came from. The Senate race is the kind of challenge that brought Gilmore into politics in the 1970s; he is both experienced and comfortable...

    Senate Candidate: Homeschoolers, Pro-Lifers, Gun Owners Threaten American Values I haven't been following closely the Virginia senate race between Democrat Mark Warner and Republican Jim Gilmore (to replace the retiring Senator John Warner). But I came across this clip this morning and found it startling. I found it startling not for what was said--because I hear Democrats saying things like this every day, just not ones running for office--but because someone was actually able to record it. Democrats--at least ones running for public office--are usually more circumspect about their true feelings like this. In this clip, you'll hear...

    After the votes were taken, The Washington Post expressed shock that some 83 percent of retiring Republicans voted for the bailout while no GOP freshmen did so. To the Post this was evidence not that elected representatives sometimes actually listen to their constituents, but that the Republican freshmen are too ideologically oriented to deal with reality. It never even occurred to the Post writer that perhaps the retiring members have as a group been in Washington so long that even had they been facing reelection the voters mattered less to them than the demands of the Washington establishment. Establishment praise...

    Retiring U.S. Sen. John Warner on Saturday voiced disappointment in fellow Republican Jim Gilmore's efforts to succeed him this fall and declined to endorse him. Instead, Warner suggested that he may wind up backing Democrat Mark Warner in the race. The two Warners are not related. John Warner took exception to Gilmore's strong condemnation of a $700 billion Wall Street rescue package that was passed by the House of Representatives on Friday and signed by President Bush. "I'm disappointed that he spoke against the rescue package that's vital to Virginia and vital to the nation," John Warner said during a...

    RICHMOND, Oct. 4 -- Retiring Sen. John W. Warner said Saturday that he has not decided whether to vote for the Republican seeking to replace him, citing James S. Gilmore III's opposition to the $700 billion federal bailout of the credit markets. In a conference call with reporters, Warner (R-Va.) held out the possibility that he will vote for Democrat Mark R. Warner. The two Warners, who are unrelated, ran against each other in a 1996 Senate campaign but have since become friends. "I'm watching that race, following the positions of the two candidates," John Warner said. "There are cases...

    In their most aggressive encounter yet, the two former governors disagreed sharply over the need for the $700 billion rescue that comes at taxpayers' expense. Warner said he would have voted for it, although the plan had flaws. Gilmore was flatly against it. "Too often in politics, the perfect can be the enemy of the good," said Warner. Failing to act would have created "economic turmoil across our whole nation," from the small business owner trying to meet payroll to the college student vying for a loan. "We didn't have the luxury of waiting," he said. Gilmore characterized the plan...

    Gilmore repeatedly steered the debate back to the bailout, replying to a question about Congressional earmark funding by listing interest groups that get tax breaks in the financial rescue package. Listen to some of them Puerto Rican rum producers, wooden-arrow producers, Hollywood everything was put in this bill to buy votes to get it passed, Gilmore said. Warner compared the bailout to the budget Gilmore left for him. You pushed off the budget shortfalls on his new administration, Warner said. Warner, who earned a fortune in early days of the cell phone business, said he has the business...

Gilmore: Mark, dont talk down to me about how I dont understand You dont understand. Warner: Even though Governor Gilmore says he didnt leave us with a budget shortfall, we all know thats not true. One issue dominated the debate tonight. 700-Billion dollars going to the high rollers on Wall Street, said Gilmore time and time again. He segued from nearly every topic back to the bail out and his opposition to it. Gilmore rode...

    ROANOKE | Far behind in the polls and desperate for a break in his U.S. Senate campaign, Republican James S. Gilmore III denounced Friday's federal bailout of the financial industry during the race's final debate and relentlessly attacked Democrat Mark Warner for supporting it. "It rewards people with $700 billion of taxpayer money and sends that money into the hands of Wall Street high rollers who in fact took risks and should not have taken those risks," Mr. Gilmore said during the debate, held at the Taubman Museum of Art.

"It rewards people with $700 billion of taxpayer money and sends that money into the hands of Wall Street high rollers who in fact took risks and should not have taken those risks," Gilmore said.

    Gilmore come out strongly against the $700 billion plan, arguing in a concise way that it amounted to government run amok. Warner supported the bailout, saying it was needed to prevent economic turmoil. Warner tried to pin the need for Congressional intervention on lax oversight by the Bush administration and "greed" on Wall Street. Warner noted that both Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama voted in the favor plan, prompting Gilmore to say at one point, "I'm not in this for John McCain, I am in this for the people on the other side of this camera." For once, Warner's...
