Ex-Virginia Gov. Gilmore Joins 2016 GOP Field
Former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore officially became the GOP field’s 17th candidate Wednesday.
Gilmore filed his paperwork with the Federal Elections Commission, launching his longest of all long-shot presidential bids under the name “Gilmore for America LLC.”
But the question remains whether he will be allowed to join the Fox News candidate forum at 5 p.m. on Aug. 6 in Cleveland.
