  Jim Gilmore hasn't gotten much attention for his presidential bid - but he might have an audience today.

The former Virginia governor hasn't even qualified for the so-called "undercard" debates among Republican candidates, much less the mainstage events featuring the top-tier contenders.

But Gilmore is filing his primary paperwork at the New Hampshire statehouse shortly before a very well-known candidate: Democrat Hillary Clinton. 

The former U.S. Secretary of State is making her fourth trip to New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner's office. In addition to filing for her first White House in the 2008 campaign, she also filed paperwork for her husband, Bill Clinton, in his two runs for president. 

Four more Republicans are scheduled to file later in the week – Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz and Rick Santorum on Thursday, and Rand Paul on Friday.

Candidates have until November 20 to submit their paperwork for New Hampshire’s presidential primary.
