Gilmore Says GOP Senators Behind Him
Since announcing his candidacy for the U.S. Senate in November, there have been questions about whether former governor James S. Gilmore III could attract support from Republicans in Washington.
But Gilmore sent an email to supporters today that notes he's already received campaign donations from 13 GOP senators.
Gilmore says he's received contributions from Trent Lott of Mississippi, Orrin Hatch of Utah, Wayne Allard of Colorado, Richard Burr or North Carolina, Norm Coleman of Minnesota, Mike Crapo of Idaho, Elizabeth Dole of North Carolina, Jim DeMint of South Carolina, Thad Cochran of Mississippi, Jeff Sessions of Alabama, Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma , Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas.
It's worth noting one prominent Republican senator wasn't on the list - Virginia Sen. John W. Warner.
