Among the Republicans celebrating a successful Election Night is former Virginia Governor and presidential candidate Jim Gilmore. Gilmore also says the tight race in Virginia speaks for the whole country – that people need change and voted for change. Gilmore only endorsed Donald Trump this September, but maintains he’s optimistic about the country’s future with Trump at the helm.
