Al Gore to Campaign in Florida for Obama

WASHINGTON – Florida was more trick than treat for Al Gore in 2000, yet the former vice president is heading to the state on Halloween to campaign for Barack Obama.
Gore and his wife, Tipper, plan to hold two rallies Friday to urge voters to cast their ballots early for the Democratic presidential nominee, Obama's campaign said Thursday. The Gores will stop in West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale.
"Nobody knows better that every single vote counts — especially in Florida — than Vice President Al Gore," said Steve Schale, Obama's state director.
