Jim Gilmore on TV: Former Virginia governor has ad in early voting states

jim-gilmoreFormer Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore is running TV spots in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina to bolster his campaign for the Republican Party presidential nomination.

And no, this isn’t a joke.

The effort is aided in large part by an equal time agreement with NBC in the fallout of the network’s move to allow GOP frontrunner Donald Trump to host “Saturday Night Live” on Nov. 7.

Gilmore is among a group of Republican candidates getting 12 minutes of airtime on NBC affiliates in the early nomination battlegrounds. The amount of time is roughly equivalent to the time that Trump was on camera on “SNL.”

The Gilmore ad touts his anti-terrorism credentials. Gilmore chaired a commission that warned of the nation’s vulnerability to a terrorist attack before 9/11.

“I’m not a Washington politician or an amateur,” Gilmore says in the ad. “As president, I will defeat ISIS and keep you safe.”
