Yep, it's true. After being the only Republican candidate to be dropped from the stage for Saturday's debate, Jim Gilmore is calling it quits.
Maybe it was the debate. Or maybe it was just that he didn't break the magical 200 threshold in New Hampshire. We can only speculate.
We can all learn a little something from the apparently unbreakable spirit of GOP presidential candidate Jim Gilmore, who was recently found eating spaghetti alone at his empty NH primary watch party.
The former Virginia governor received 125 votes—that’s 125 votes total, and 113 more than he got in Iowa—in the New Hampshire primary. Vermin Supreme, a fake candidate who dresses like a wizard, received more votes than him. So did Rick Santorum, who wasn’t even running anymore. Today, Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina, both of whom received enough votes in the primary to generate actual percentage points, dropped out of the race.
Say goodbye to Jim Gilmore, folks.
