Jim Gilmore got out today. From his release.

I am today withdrawing my candidacy for the Republican nomination for President. It has been a positive and rewarding experience for me, for my family, and for my supporters.

It has become apparent to me that the combination of my late start, and the front loaded nature of the primary schedule, have made it impractical to continue to pursue this path towards further public service.

Perhaps he is just a bad candidate? He ends it:

In the coming weeks and months, I intend to remain active in the Republican Party and in the public debate. I will be forming a state political action committee to assist Republican candidates in the General Assembly. Additionally, I will be actively looking for other opportunities to continue in public service in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Sounds like he will run for Senate or Governor.

Why aren’t are Matt Drudge, Bob Novak, Michelle Malkin, Rush Limbaugh, and Hugh Hewitt parading this campaign casualty? The only death they care to see is that of McCains.

Because no one noticed that Gilmore was in the race in the first place?

Gilmore has been a clown.
