Jim Gilmore not included in CNN Republican presidential debates

jim-gilmoreJim Gilmore will not be among the 16 candidates on the stage at the two CNN Republican Party presidential debates scheduled for Sept. 16.

The former Virginia governor met the 1 percent voter-support threshold in just one of the three polls that CNN used to determine the field for the debates. A sort of semifinalist debate will be broadcast at 6 p.m. featuring Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Lindsey Graham, Bobby Jindal and George Pataki.

The prime-time 8 p.m. debate will include Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul and Carly Fiorina.

Gilmore is the only candidate of the 17 Republicans who have announced their intention to run for the GOP presidential nomination left out of the field.
