Al Gore to headline NJ Dem convention

September 25, 2009 9:55:05 AM PDT
Former Vice President Al Gore will be in Atlantic City Friday for New Jersey's Democratic State Committee convention. Gore is scheduled to give the convention's keynote address at a dinner honoring Gov. Jon Corzine and hosted by Rep. Frank Pallone.

Corzine is facing a tough re-election bid from GOP rival Chris Christie, a federal prosecutor during the Bush administration.

Hundreds of Democrats are attending the three-day event that kicked off Thursday night. The event includes panel discussions and tributes to party leaders.

Gore served as vice president under Bill Clinton and was the Democratic nominee for president in 2000. He has since focused on environmental activism.
