The ghosts of 2000

John Kerry is using the prospect of Florida 2000 to raise money for Al Franken's squeaky close election fight in Minnesota.

"Picture this," says an e-mail from Kerry. "A razor close election, and the Republican holds a tiny lead after the first count of millions of ballots. And, once again, he goes to court - repeatedly - to try to
shut down the recount.

"Not Bush v. Gore in Florida - this is Franken vs. Coleman in Minnesota..."

He asks contributors to "make sure Al Franken has the resources he needs to continue to keep up the fight to make sure each and every valid vote is counted."
