Former Gov. Jim Gilmore will be in Lynchburg on Friday for campaign appearances at Liberty University.
Gilmore, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, will attend convo, then speak to the school’s chapter of College Republicans later that day.
But the former governor is not the guest speaker at convocation.
The College Republicans meet will be at 6 p.m. meeting. Gilmore likely will speak about his campaign, national security, and the economy.
Gilmore faces opposition from Del. Robert G. Marshall, R-Prince William, for the Republican nomination and to challenge former Gov. Mark Warner, the Democratic contender, for the seat being vacated by U.S. Sen. John Warner, R-Va.
The Helms School of Government will host a private reception and meet-and- greet with Gilmore at 5 p.m.
He expects that Gilmore may ask club members for campaign assistance.
He will be held in room 1101 of the DeMoss Learning Center.
