Former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore announced this weekend in front of several hundred conservatives that he is considering a run for the Republican nomination for President. While Gilmore didn’t have any campaign staff in tow at the Leadership Institute’s “Conservative Soiree” in Centreville, he was happy to tell a number of conservative leaders gathered at the event what he’d like to see changed in the way the Executive Branch operates and gave every indication that he’s serious about this.
It’s not the first time Gilmore has tried, and his last effort in 2008 didn’t last that long. What’s changed since then? Well, there doesn’t seem to be an announced candidate from Virginia yet and hardly any of the campaigns seem to have much of a presence in the Commonwealth at this point. Nature abhors a vacuum, right?
