Matt Williams, Gilmore's aide, says the Republican filed papers today with the Federal Election Commission in Washington to form the Jim Gilmore for President Exploratory Committee.
Gilmore said in interviews last month that he didn't see a true conservative running for President, and said he would assess his own chances for a presidential run.
Gilmore was elected governor in 1997 by promising to cut Virginia's property tax that local governments levy on personal cars and pickups.
