Former GOP presidential candidate Jim Gilmore said Friday he would support the eventual Republican nominee to avoid another Democrat in the White House.
"I intend to endorse and support the Republican candidate for president because the alternative is either Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders, " he told CNBC's "Squawk Box. " "They're both talking about giving away everything and not doing anything to grow the economy."
While refusing to back one of the remaining GOP candidates, Gilmore was rather critical of front-runner Donald Trump. Angry voters are looking for a "radical solution" and Trump is offering them such an option, he said.
Trump gets an unfair amount of media coverage, Gilmore said. "The FCC needs to address this problem of free advertising ... for selected candidates like Donald Trump."
Gilmore, a former governor of Virginia, ended his presidential campaign earlier this month after poor showings in Iowa and New Hampshire.
Asked why some of the candidates who still can't seem to get any traction just don't drop out, he said: "I have no idea why they're staying as all as they are."
Ohio Gov. John Kasich believes he can bring a "governor's experience to the table," Gilmore speculated. Kasich is the last governor or ex-governor standing after former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush dropped out of the race last weekend.
"Ben Carson, he's a nice guy, but I don't know what he has to say about the future of the country, " Gilmore said. "As a physician, I certainly would want him operating on me, but I don't know what he's offering in the debate."
