WATCH: Gilmore Uses Trump/SNL Equal Time For 30-second Anti-ISIS Ad

Former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore is the 1st GOP Presidential candidate to detail how he is using his 12 1/2 minutes of free airtime from Donald Trump's Saturday Night Live hosting gig. Gilmore is using a normal 30-second commercial proclaiming that he is the candidate who "will defeat ISIS... and keep you safe."

The ad will run 25 times on NBC affiliates in the early-voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, tonight and tomorrow.

Six GOP candidates requested equal time from some NBC affiliates.  Four of them settled for this 25-spot package, while George Pataki and Rand Paul have apparently not yet reached an agreement.

Here is the transcript of Gilmore's ad (as provided by the campaign):
"We can’t trust our safety to Washingtonpoliticians--- or inexperienced amateurs. I was in Army Intelligence, chairman of a terrorism commission that warned about a possible attack before nine eleven. And. Governor during 9/11. I’m not a Washington politician or an amateur. As President I will defeat ISIS. And, keep you safe. "
