Former Vice President Al Gore has never announced a 2008 Presidential run, but there’s been speculation he might stage a comeback. Chris Vallone is counting on it. He’s the San Francisco coordinator for the “California Draft Gore” campaign.
“Definitely Vice President Gore has left the door open.”
Vallone says his organization hopes to put Gore’s name on the presidential primary ballot. Gore could end up on the ballot if supporters collect at least 500 registered Democrats’ signatures in each of the state’s 53 congressional districts:
“We basically just want him to see that he has a lot of support in California and that if he does enter the race he’ll be very competitive in this state and I think the sure-fire winner.”
Vallone says they’ve recruited more than a-thousand volunteers statewide and are set to begin gathering signatures within a few days.
