Jim Gilmore Suspends Presidential Campaign


Former Va. Gov Jim Gilmore (R) is suspending his presidential campaign, according to reports.

“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 in a statement, first reported by the Washington Examiner.

“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,” he added.

Gilmore vowed to help elect a Republican to succeed President Obama.
