A New Hampshire based "Draft Gore" group claims to have 1,000 signatures from New Hampshire voters who want Al Gore to enter the presidential race.
Draft Gore New Hampshire, based in Littleton, said in a press release that organizers have collected the names in a petition drive at picnics, campaign events, fairs, and parades this summer. They plan to continue the effort this fall.
"The results of our petition drive indicate that there is a strong undercurrent of support for Al Gore in New Hampshire which is not reflected accurately in polls or in the opinions of visiting out-of-state media pundits," according to Farrell Seiler, statewide coordinator of the organization.
Nevertheless, Gore has repeatedly said he is not interested in running and has made no public moves suggesting to the contrary.
