Gilmore announces

From a release:

GILMORE TO OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCE CANDIDACY

IN LIVE WEBCAST FROM IOWA GOP HEADQUARTERS

DES MOINES Making his third visit to Iowa in three weeks, former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore will officially announce as a candidate for President of the United States Thursday in a live webcast from the Republican Party of Iowa headquarters.

Gilmores entry in the race comes as conservatives in Iowa and elsewhere continue to express their dissatisfaction with the so-called front runners for the Republican nomination. A tax cutting former Virginia Governor, Gilmore is a leading authority on homeland security and is making the need for a more secure America a central part of his campaign message.

Gilmores official announcement of candidacy will be at 12 noon Thursday at GOP headquarters, 621 East 9th Street in Des Moines. The announcement will be broadcast live on the web at www.gilmoreforpresident.com . Following the announcement, Gilmore will answer questions from voters on a live blog chat.

2. Gilmore's claim to fame?
Leaving Virginia in such a fiscal mess that voters turned to Mark Warner to clean it up...which he did...starting Virginia on the road from Red to Blue...

3. Does anybody outside of Virginia even know who he is?
He left this state in a fiscal shambles, and he was never able to fully follow through on his stupid tax promises. What a putz.
