Gilmore Will Celebrate 4th of July in Fairfax

Tim Craig

Republican U.S. Senate James S. Gilmore III is preparing for a major campaign push across Virginia, including reaching out to voters in Fairfax County.

On Friday, Gilmore will march in the Dale City Independence Day parade during the morning. Gilmore, a former governor, will then attend the Leadership Institute's "Annual Conservative Fourth of July Soirée" at Bull Run Park in Centreville. The event is billed as a "patriotic annual celebration for all things conservative." Gilmore will wrap up his July 4 politicking by participating in the Clifton Independence Day parade and picnic.

"This is just the beginning," Ana Gamonal, a Gilmore spokeswoman, said of the campaign's efforts in Fairfax County, a county Gilmore won during his 1998 bid for governor but has since been trending Democratic. "By spending one of the busiest days of the campaign in Northern Virginia, this shows our commitment to the region."

On Saturday, Gilmore plans to attend the Tomato festival in Hanover County, an annual event that attracts over 40,000 people. Gilmore will then travel to Virginia Beach for the Filipino Festival.

On Monday, Gilmore kicks off a two-day campaign swing down the Interstate 81 corridor as part of his "working families" statewide tour.
