Special Event

Vice President Al Gore Stumps in Jacksonville, Florida

Aired March 3, 2000 - 11:17 a.m. ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

BILL HEMMER, CNN ANCHOR: The latest polling is out here in Ohio, as well. On the Democratic side, those polls still show Al Gore to have a rather-commanding lead over Bill Bradley. In fact, Al Gore's back on the stump today. He's now at a rally in Jacksonville, Florida. The vice president on the stage now. We'll listen in shortly to hear his message thus far today.

(JOINED IN PROGRESS)

VICE PRES. AL GORE (D), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Let me tell you about what schools were like when I started elementary school so long ago. I'm a part of the Baby Boom generation. You probably heard all about that generation. It was born right after World War II. And the schools were overcrowded when my generation went to school. But the veteran's of World War II, who saved the world, came back to this country and saw some things that needed to be changed here, and that's why they started this civil rights revolution, which must be continued toward victory for equal rights and full civil rights for all of our people.

HEMMER: (OFF-MIKE) on the stump, there, in Jacksonville, Florida, talking about civil rights, and before that the issue of education. Here in Ohio, education is said to be the number-one topic, as well the economy right behind it.
