Former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore virtually disappeared after winning the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in 2008, although conspiracy theorists still posit evidence of his “campaign.” His fellow members in the Edge-of-the-Earth Club are Amelia Earhart, whose plane vanished over the Pacific Ocean during an attempted trip around the globe, and Bishop E.W. Jackson, whose disappearance occurred after he won the GOP nomination for Virginia Lt. Governor in 2013. Now, Gilmore is considering another venture into oblivion.
