Gov. Jim Gilmore Eats Into Democrat Base


Bill Hobbs the current Communications Director for the Tennessee Republican Party, has a good write up here on our former Governor. There's a couple of tidbits of information I didn't know such as Gov. Gilmore is on the Board of Directors for the NRA. With any luck we get 'Motor City Madman' Ted Nugent to Virginia for some politiking... Like the Shad Planking maybe?
Hobbs points out some facts here that make is pretty clear why Gov. Gilmore has been the most successful candidate to attract voters from Virginian's with African Heritage:

"Gilmore proposed and signed into law Virginia's first stand-alone Martin Luther King Holiday. Gilmore and his wife hosted a historic reception in the Governor's Mansion for Coretta Scott King and announced a technology partnership between Virginia and the King Center for Nonviolence. He also proposed and funded a new African-American History Trail in Virginia and called upon the State Board of Education to include a more diverse range of historical figures in Virginia's Social Studies curriculum. Test scores during Gilmore's term showed a narrowing of the "achievement gap" between minority and white students. Gilmore also significantly increased funding for Virginia's two historic black universities, Norfolk State University and Virginia State University."


Little wonder why Gov. Warner is desperate to get a 'macaca moment' Gov. Gilmore at the RPV Advance.... he's going to need it going up against a candidate that will be eating into his base.
