Former Vice President Al Gore delivered a speech on economic policy issues at the Brookings Institution five weeks before the 2002 mid-term congressional and gubernatorial elections.
With this economic policy speech and a recent speech in San Francisco criticizing the Bush administration’s policies on the war against terrorism, a possible invasion of Iraq, and other foreign policy issues, Gore will have addressed the principal issues facing voters.
Since the end of the contested 2000 presidential election, Al Gore has taught at Columbia University, Fisk University, and Middle Tennessee State University. He was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1976, and in 1984 was elected to U.S. Senate. Before earning the Democratic nomination for president in 2000, he was a candidate for the nomination in 1988.
