Everyone’s favorite forgotten candidate announced Friday he is suspending his presidential campaign.

The former Virginia Governor has an impressive resume, but never managed to gain any traction in the crowded Republican primary. He was always gracious, good humored, and appeared to enjoy glad-handing with the good folk of this country. Though he may be gone (from the race), he will not soon be forgotten. Actually, that’s not true. But we’ll pretend.

Best wishes, Gov. Gilmore.
