Gilmore Puts in Long Days as He Hunts For Votes
Republican Senate candidate James S. Gilmore III may be behind in the polls and in fundraising, but he certainly is keeping up an energetic pace on the campaign trail.
Over the next three days, Gilmore will be putting in 12-hour days as he hunts for votes in his race against Democratic candidate Mark R. Warner.
Gilmore visited a bait and tackle shop at noon today in Hampton. He is now on to a "meet and greet" in Williamsburg. Gilmore will start his day tomorrow at 6.50 a.m, when he visits shift workers at Smithfield Foods in Smithfield, near Norfolk. Gilmore will then traverse Southside with stops in Suffolk, Emporia, South Boston and Danville. On Wednesday, Gilmore has seven campaign stops planned in the south central part of the state.
If Gilmore can sustain that pace throughout the fall, he may be able to develop a reputation as being the candidate in the race who is working harder - especially given his limited resources - for the job.
Kevin Hall, a Warner spokesman, said he's not worried about Gilmore out- hustling Warner on the campaign trail. Hall noted Warner attended more than a dozen events last week.
