Former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore, who is running for president, said attacks on former President Bill Clinton's past martial indiscretions are fair game if he is campaigning for Hillary.

"Well of course, if she brings him onto the campaign trail, then at that point as the former president he becomes an issue in the campaign to be sure," Gilmore said on NewsMaxTV's Steve Malzberg Show Tuesday evening.

Republican front-runner Donald Trump and former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina this week also said Clinton's past discretions were "fair game" in the campaign.

"Don't forget, that when he ran for president Hillary said, 'vote for both of us, you'll get two for one,' and boy we did," added Gilmore. "And now I think that they're getting ready to play that over again. I don't think the people of the United States are going back to that past situation. I think they want to move forward.."

Gilmore, who often registers with no support or one percent in most national polls, insists he is in the campaign for the long haul.
