Republican presidential candidate Jim Gilmore on Wednesday afternoon bragged that his campaign is still running as more and more of his rivals drop out of the race.
Gilmore's comments came after reports earlier Wednesday that Rick Santorum had become the latest GOP candidate to bow out of the race, joining Rand Paul, who ended his campaign early Wednesday.
"Started out as 1 of 17 GOP Candidates, now with Rand Paul & Rick Santorum out, 1 or 9. #StillStanding," Gilmore tweeted.

Gilmore, who launched his long-shot White House bid in July 2015, came in last among a dozen candidates in the Iowa caucus on Monday night with 0.0 percent or 12 total votes.
