Re: Gilmore

Quin, you’re right about Gilmore deserving credit for bringing up property rights. It’s also a smart move politically. When we hosted Gilmore at one of our Newsmaker Breakfasts, one of his problems was that he was too general, and lacked any sort of signature issue that traditionally is necessary for a bottom-tier candidate to gain traction. Anger over eminient domain abuse unites Republicans of all stripes, and is a 90-percent issue among the general public, yet the other candidates have been pretty silent about it. If Gilmore adopts this as his issue, and begins to talk about it every chance he gets, let’s hope some of the top-tier candidates begin to give it serious attention.
