N.Y. Gore People Still Trying

Here’s a scouting report from some local Al Gore supporters who are trying to get their candidate on the presidential primary ballot here.

From an email from Bud Plautz, chairman of the Primary Petition Drive for Al Gore in New York:

"The early reports are good. We are on our way to putting Al Gore on the ballot.

"Monroe County reported that they collected 150 signatures on Saturday at the local Public Market. Not surprisingly, the Unwashed Upper West Side of Manhattan reports collecting 170 signatures on Saturday. In addition, I have in hand 139 signatures, led by Sue Ellen Dockery of Brooklyn who collected 80 signatures in the early hours of the first day of petitioning before going to work that morning."
