Election Mess Update

For the first time in its history – The Supreme Court may help decide who the next President may be, or they could let the Florida legislature decide. A ruling is expected next week. 

Attorneys for Al Gore tries to convince a county judge to throw open the presidential race by resuming the vote counting in Florida and order a canvass of thousands of disputed ballots.

For now, it’s still governor, not president-elect Bush, Bush told “60 Minutes II” that there would be no role for his younger brother, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush in his administration.

Vice President Al Gore says that he believes he still has a 50-50 chance of winning the presidency. He believes his future rests almost entirely in the hands of the Florida Supreme Court.

A judge flatly rejects Al Gore’s bid to overturn Florida’s certified results.
