Al Gore Returns To Florida To Campaign For Hillary Clinton? What He Looking For His Missing Global Warming?
WASHINGTON ― Tuesday afternoon, former Vice President Al Gore will join Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on stage in Miami. They will be greeted by thousands of supporters. Gore is expected to speak about climate change, a topic that has consumed him since leaving office, and the importance of keeping a Democrat in the White House.
But for Gore the moment might be a little bittersweet. He will be returning to a state whose ballot problems and vote-counting politics cost him the presidency in his run against Republican George W. Bush in 2000. The Clinton campaign hopes that by resurfacing memories of that moment, it might remind voters about the perils of backing a third-party candidate. There may never have been the need for a recount in 2000 had some progressives in Florida not voted for Green Party candidate Ralph Nader.
