In November 2000, Albert Gore ran against George W. Bush for President. In the end, there was a dispute. But that was solved when Florida gave its electoral votes to Bush even though Gore had the higher popular vote

However, this was a very close race, and many have examined what could have happened if Gore became President. In President Al, we examine an ATL where Gore becomes President.



November: Albert Gore Jr. and George W. Bush run for President. The race is close. The outcome depends on Florida's electoral vote.

December: Florida's electoral vote go to Bush. Bush and Cheney concede five hours after the votes are given to them. Gore is named President-elect in his place. Florida's votes are re-awarded to Gore
