Al Gore’s General Election Legal and Accounting Compliance Fund still has a balance $6.5 million left over from the 2000 campaign. Today, Gore indicated that he would donate the money to several Democratic groups in an effort to support John Kerry: “John will be a great president for all Americans, and I want to do everything I can to help him fight against the outrageous and misleading campaign being waged by the Bush-Cheney campaign.”
Two quick issues:
One, I wonder if Kerry (who obviously appreciates the support) ever thought, even for a second, about what happened to Howard Dean after Gore endorsed him.
Two, there is more than $6 million left? Could that money have been spent in Florida?
