June 14, 1999 - Al Gore in New Orleans

Vice President Al Gore's campaign tried to grab a little of the electoral spotlight, launching Sunday its Mayors for Gore effort with endorsements from 171 mayors from across the country. Mayor Marc Morial of New Orleans joined Richard Daley of Chicago, Bill Campbell of Atlanta, Kurt Schmoke of Baltimore, Thomas M. Menino of Boston, Edward Rendell of Philadelphia and dozens of other mayors in endorsing Gore's presidential bid. Gore, who danced his way through a fund-raiser on Bourbon Street Monday morning, is in New Orleans to address the U.S. Conference of Mayors.
