Draft Gore Makes Headlines with Full-Page Ad in the New York Times
|Oct. 10 -- We couldn't have done it without you. In early October we asked you to help us take out an ad in the New York Times. We didn't know if we could ever come close. You came through, some 2,000 of you. And just over a week later our full-page ad appeared in the New York Times.
The entire ad consists of an open letter to Al Gore, asking him to run for President.

The ad has received widespread coverage in the media, both nationally and around the world. A few days later the news continued to be covered as part of the reports on Al Gore winning the Nobel Peace Prize.
Here are a few of the hundreds of reports about our ad on TV, radio and in print.

Here's a clip of a national AP radio news segment that ran all over the country the day the ad came out.
Our petition now stands at 216,000 signatures -- up from 137,000 the day of the New York Times ad.
