Gilmore Declines to Debate Marshall
Former governor James S. Gilmore III will not debate his rival for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate, Del. Robert G. Marshall (R-Prince William), next month in an event sponsored by three Young Republican clubs in Northern Virginia.
"We're past the point of debate,'' said Ana M. Gamonal, Gilmore's spokeswoman.
Gamonal said Gilmore's schedule is packed between now and next month's convention when delegates from across the state will choose a nominee.
But, she said, Gilmore and Marshall have already appeared together many times including the recent shad planking in Wakefield.
"Delegates already know where Gov. Gilmore stands on the issues,'' she said.
Gamanol said Gilmore's goal now is to get delegates to turn out and to find out where presumptive Democratic nominee former governor Mark R. Warner stands on the issues.
