Gilmore, former U.S. Army intelligence agent who has spent the last eight months campaigning for the Republican presidential nomination, said the difficulty of the debate structure combined with the national media coverage of the candidates made it impossible for him to continue his campaign for the presidency. But, he said he is determined to help elect a Republican 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. 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."
"Nonetheless, I will continue to express my concerns about the dangers of electing someone who has pledged to continue Obama's disastrous policies. And, I will continue to do everything I can to ensure that our next President is a free enterprise Republican who will restore our nation to greatness and keep our citizens safe."
Some highlights on his political career:
January 18, 2001 – December 5, 2001: Gilmore was Chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC).
January 17, 1998 – January 12, 2002: Gov. of Virginia
January 15, 1994 – June 11, 1997: Attorney General of Virginia
