In what may become known as a key turning point for the Bill Bradbury's gubernatorial campaign, Vice President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore announced his endorsement of Bradbury at this morning's sold out fundraiser at the Left Bank. While it was no secret Gore was supportive of Bradbury's campaign, this morning's unequivocal endorsement was icing on the cake and thrilling to those of us in the energized audience. From Gore:
proud to endorse Bill Bradbury as the next Governor of this state. Let
me just say you won’t hear a negative word of any kind about John
Kitzhaber, a distinguished former Governor who served honorably in the
past in this state.
I am here to speak for Bill Bradbury and tell you what I know about this man. And to tell you what I know about this man has meant to me personally as a friend of extremely strong character, commitment and leadership.
There is more on the endorsement on Bradbury's Kos Diary.
