Attention townspeople: Jim Gilmore has officially dropped out of the presidential race. I know this comes as a shock to many, mostly because…who? Most didn’t even know he was in the race to begin with.
“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 sent to 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.”
“Nonetheless, I will continue to express my concerns about the dangers of electing someone who has pledged to continue Obama’s disastrous policies,” Gilmore said. “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.”
At least he can brag that he stayed in the race longer than not just Paul and Santorum, but Christie and Fiorina as well.
Started out as 1 of 17 GOP Candidates, now with Rand Paul & Rick Santorum out, 1 or 9. #StillStanding

Who should drop out next? I vote Jeb!, Kasich and (I hate to say this) Carson.
