    POUND, Va. (AP) — People in Virginia’s coal country still love President Donald Trump, but not his pick to be their next governor. Ed Gillespie is a Washington insider and Trump’s choice as Virginians prepare to go to the polls. The president promised southwest Virginia voters in a tweet, “Ed Gillespie will never let you down!” Trump, who promised to revive the coal industry, had some of his biggest victory margins in Appalachia’s coal region last year. But those same voters said they know little about Gillespie, a former Republican National Committee chairman, corporate lobbyist and multimillionaire who was raised...

    I was out a short time ago running some errands and had The Chris Plante Radio Show on. Plante was talking to somebody at the Republican Convention and he said after three days of being there that he was seeing people there as attendees and guests that just were not his kind of people. I took that to mean this guy was GOP establishment, he did not like Trump and he certainly did not like the people Trump has brought into the party. You see they were "Not his sort of people". Interpret that however you would like, but my...

    Former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore, who also once ran the RNC, was one of the original candidates running against Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination. Now, Gilmore has a major announcement to make: He is officially endorsing Donald Trump for President! While Gilmore’s campaign never gained traction, he is popular in the key state of Virginia and could be helpful with working with the Republican establishment to help bring them on board during these critical weeks before the RNC convention in Cleveland, Ohio. Appearing on “CNN Newsroom” With Brooke Baldwin, Gilmore said that part of Trump’s appeal has been...

    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...

    Former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore formally announced his bid for the White House Thursday, becoming the 17th Republican presidential primary candidate.

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.

    Colorado - The Gilmore case attracted national attention because he supported demonstrations at an Occupy Wall Street encampment a block away from where the fire was started. Occupy activists were protesting against economic inequality and government policies favoring the wealthy. The early-morning fire caused an estimated $10 million damage to a four-story apartment complex under construction and the occupied Penny Flats condominium and retail building next door.

    Odd, the pianist Kirill Gerstein thought. A music critic from Houston was coming to interview him in Jacksonville, Fla. Mr. Gerstein’s manager had arranged the meeting, at the Omni Hotel’s J bar, to coincide with a run of concerts last November. Might as well meet the writer, the pianist thought. Kirill Gerstein, a naturalized American citizen of Russian origin, is the latest recipient of the $300,000 Gilmore Artist Award. But instead of a critic waiting at the bar, it was the man from the Gilmore festival. And in his hand was an envelope proclaiming Mr. Gerstein the latest winner of...

    Virginia’s U.S. Senate race between two former governors presents marked contrasts between the men in style and substance. Even those who prefer Republican Jim Gilmore’s platform say they like Democrat Mark Warner’s persona. We agree. How, then, to choose? Here’s one way: This year’s top voter concern, no surprise, is the economy. And on that measure, Mr. Gilmore’s principles and, yes, even his well-known stubbornness will better serve Virginia in the U.S. Senate. Mr. Gilmore’s principles are strongly aligned with foundational American freedoms — free enterprise, free markets, freedom to work and the right to vote freely in labor elections...

    Former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore faces a difficult political task this year, running as a red-state conservative in Virginia - a "purple" state that is turning increasingly blue. The Democratic nominee, former Gov. Mark Warner, is heavily favored to win the Senate seat being vacated by retiring Republican John Warner, who has held it for 30 years. But Mr. Gilmore would be the superior choice. ... As governor, Mr. Gilmore is best known for his work to repeal the oppressive car tax. Mr. Warner's major political achievement as governor was his success in pushing a $1.4 billion tax increase through...
