Gore hopes the non-stop eleventh hour campaigning will make the difference in what is predicted to be the closest presidential election in forty years. In St. Louis, he urged union members to get out the vote, repeating his theme that he is the candidate who will advance worker's interests, fight for the middle class, protect Social Security and stand up to special interests. He asked voters to visualize two scenarios for going out to get the newspaper the morning after the election.
