Sept. 4, 2000: Vice President Al Gore greets supporters after a Labor Day Parade at Point State Park.
An article describing Al Gore’s visit in the Post-Gazette read: “As he ran through lines of cheering supporters, Al Gore’s arms spread like wings. He banked from side to side, trading high fives with the crowd lining his path into Point State Part as the National Association of Letter Carriers band serenaded him with the Pennsylvania Polka.”
The vice president marched the last 200 yards of the Labor Day Parade before “offering a working-class appeal of Democratic partisans gathered in front of Point Park fountain.”
“I want to fight for you, ” said Gore. “That’s why I’m in this race. We’re for the people; they’re for the powerful.”
