This was an incredibly hard fought campaign, one in which Al Gore and
Joe Lieberman laid out a clear and compelling vision for the future of the
United States. Thanks in large part to your energy and support, Al Gore
and Joe Lieberman won the popular vote, and, we believe, the vote in
Florida as well.
Because this is the closest presidential election in American history,
the candidate who received the most votes in Florida will be not only the
winner of that state, but also the next President of the United States.
In every election -- and especially one that is this close -- every vote
counts. That is why we believe that every vote must be counted. To that
end, we have set up a Recount Committee.
This committee is based in both Washington, DC, as well as Tallahassee,
Florida. It helps us pay for legal representation as well as the hundreds
of monitors and support staff needed to oversee the recount effort. If you
wish to support the recount committee, you can do so on line at: https://www1518.boca15-verio.com/gorel8/secure.
The presidency of the United States needs to be determined by the will
of the people, and in the recount we are seeking nothing more than to
determine that will by seeking the most fair and accurate count possible.
Thank you again for your support.
