1. It's Filing Time
2. Deputy Campaign Managers Brazile & Spector
3. A New Director For Iowa
4. On The Campaign Trail


Yesterday was April 15 and, like everyone else, Gore 2000 had some filing to do. The campaign filed a report with the FEC for the first quarter of 1999. Gore 2000 reported contributions of roughly $8.9 million. Total cash on hand for the campaign (as of March 31) was $6,850,634.35.  Seventy-four percent of the more than 45,000 Gore 2000 contributors gave $100 or less. Gore 2000 contributors come from every state in the nation. These figures reflect the strong, broad and deep support the Vice President enjoys across America. The New York Times today (4/16) wrote, "The impressive $8.9 million raised by the Gore campaign during the first three months of the year shows that the vice president's base of support is still strong."
