Gilmore said he is looking to possibly run for U.S. Senate if republican John Warner doesn't run again or he may run again for Governor in 2009.
Some experts say he could face some resistance from Virginia voters.
“Recently having been in the news, having been in the headlines he's a popular name, although he did leave the governorship with below a 50 percent approval rating, so I think it would be a challenge for him to connect with a lot of voters that for some reason or another weren't very happy with his record on his way out,” said Matt Smyth, UVa Center for Politics.
In the meantime, Gilmore has established a committee to support general assembly candidates.
