Interview with Gilmore: 'I'm not getting out'

Republican presidential candidate Jim Gilmore says he isn't sure which candidate will drop out of the Republican presidential primary race next, but the former governor of Virginia does know he won't be the one.

"I know it isn't going to be me," Gilmore said during an exclusive phone interview with the Washington Examiner, as he explained how serious he is about his bid for the White House in 2016.

This weekend Gilmore is traveling through New Hampshire, his 13th trip to the Granite State this year. He said that on Monday he will file his candidate papers for a spot on the primary ballot in New Hampshire. In South Carolina, Gilmore is already on the ballot and he is gathering petitions in Virginia. Next weekend, an appearance at a Republican Party of Florida summit will automatically qualify him for the state's ballot.

"I'm not getting out of the race, I don't need to get out of the race — I'm not getting out of the race. I am the right person to be the president. I have specific experience and programs that will help this country at a time when it needs to be helped the most and I'm not getting out of the race," Gilmore said.
