RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Former White House adviser and Republican U.S. Senate nominee Ed Gillespie has created a political action committee as part of his plan to run for Virginia governor in 2017.

The Washington Post (https://wapo.st/1SjJJiG ) reports that Gillespie’s Let’s Grow, Virginia! PAC has scheduled its first two fundraisers for Dec. 7 in northern Virginia and Dec. 10 in Richmond. Details, including locations and ticket prices, have not yet been determined.

The formation of the PAC comes a month after the Republican confirmed that he would seek his party’s nomination for governor.

Gillespie is a former chairman of the Republican National Committee and counselor to President George W. Bush. He lost to U.S. Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.) last year in a close race for the Senate seat.
