THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Vice President
STATEMENT BY VICE PRESIDENT GORE
ON PRELIMINARY ELECTION RESULTS
Although all the results aren't in yet, so far, tonight has been a good night for America and a good night for Democrats.
Americans had a choice, and they chose progress over partisanship. They voted to protect Social Security, pass a patient's bill of rights, raise the minimum wage, modernize our schools, and continue to grow our economy.
They are sending a message to Washington: they want us to get back to work on the people's business -- and tomorrow, President Clinton and I will do just that. We'll be meeting with our team that is working on our efforts to protect Social Security -- and we will be moving ahead on that priority.
