Any thoughts on why almost a quarter of Arkansas Democrats voted for LaRouche in the 2000 primary?  I would think Gore would've been particularly strong in Arkansas since he was from a neighboring state.

Probably because they were looking for an alternative after Bradley dropped out.  I don't know.

I think this is the eigth time LaRouche has run fo president.  He is running against Dean in the EC primary.  A heated rivalry it is!

Here are the websites of some garbage candidates:

www.ashby2004.com: Moderate Republicans for Ashby!
www.justicedemanded.org: John Bosa
www.milliehoward.com
www.rigazioforpresident.com
www.runsomeidiot.com: Jim Taylor

All of these "candidates" are "challenging" George W. bush in the New Hampshire Republican primary.

Millie Howard had 75 000 000 dollars as her goal. Lol.
That Ashby guy didn't seem so bad though (stupid for trying to run against Budh yes, but not bad)...I guess I am naive *sigh*.

Arkanasas is a socially conservative state, it is not for the massive environmental extremism that Gore has written about and his stand on guns hurt him as well.


Why did Gore loose Arkansas? Wouldnt the fact that it was clintons state gave Gore Arkansas.

Arkansas is a conservative state, it went Dem in 1976 for it's own southerner, Carter, and didn't do that again for 16 years.

look at the Gov and 2 senators, 1 GOP and 2 Dems but all are moderates to conservatives.

I knew Hutchinson would lose in 2002 as he was a bit underhanded in divorcing his wife an marrying his aide, that was THE issue in the race.

Gore lost AR because he upset/distanced himself from Clinton.

Well i do think that was ONE factor, but I think the conservative nature of the people pf Arkansas was a bigger reason.

Huh?  Gore won his home state... he carried Washington DC with no problems.

Let me be as clear as I can be:
GORE WAS NOT FROM TENNESSEE.  He was born in DC.

This has been a public service announcement courtesy of the residents of Tennessee who helped elect our President, George W. Bush and who are sick and tired of having Algore called "our favorite son".  As Tennessee helped to create Texas, we like to think of George W. Bush as our favorite son by proxy, thank you very much.

This is interesting. Exactly how is a "home state" defined? Current resident, right? Nixon actually changed home states from 1960 to 1968.

Yes, by residency.  Bush was born in Connecticut, Dean in New York, and so on.

Bill would argue that he could have won the state for Gore, but Gore told him to stay away. I think Bush would have lost the state anyway, but it was competitive and I think it may have been more competitive had Clinton just moved there practically-- every other weekend for two months or something.  Even just figuring out a gameplan to get a historic turnout of black voters with Clinton would have been good for Gore.
