Washington, D.C. - Al Gore has received the support of hundreds of Hispanic elected officials and community leaders from across the country. The endorsements came today as Al Gore kicked off Ganamos con Gore (We Win with Gore) -- a national effort by Gore 2000 to energize Al Gore's deep, broad-based support in the Hispanic community -- at an national event in Washington.

"I am honored to have the support of so many outstanding Latino leaders from across the country," Al Gore said. "We share the same values: familia, educacion, amor de patria, communidad, y Dios.* With their support and partnership, we can take giant steps forward for the working families who are the hope and soul of this nation." * (Family, education, love of country, community, and God)

The Hon. Bill Richardson, said, "Al Gore has demonstrated leadership and vision on the issues that matter most to the Hispanic community - education, jobs, healthcare, and strengthening families. His initiatives on children's health and Hispanic education are great investments for a prosperous future for Hispanics in America."

"Vice President Gore has backed up his commitment to the Latino community with action," added the Hon. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA), chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. "Under the leadership of the Clinton-Gore administration, we have seen Latino poverty and unemployment drop to their lowest levels in history. But the Vice President knows that we have much more work to do and I believe he will fight for the kind of change our communities need. That is why I am supporting Al Gore for President of the United States."

The Hon. Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus said, "From the first day Al Gore took the oath of office as Vice President, he has been an advocate for our community. Whether it was lifting more than one million Hispanics out of poverty through the Earned Income Tax Credit, or unveiling an aggressive plan to have the Small Business Administration make $25 billion in loans to Hispanic businesses, or making the largest investment in a Hispanic Education plan, Al Gore has been a fighter for Hispanic Americans. I am proud to endorse him along with hundreds of other Latino elected officials, because Al Gore understands that our agenda is America's agenda; our challenges are America's challenges; and our future is America's future."

Pedro Rossello, Governor of Puerto Rico commented, "Vice President Gore possesses an extraordinary intellectual capacity and honesty, has an extensive knowledge and sensitivity of the American Government and society, and has demonstrated a profound commitment to improving the health, education, and quality of life for all Americans. It is my conviction that he is the most qualified person to be the next President of the United States, and I feel privileged to be able to work with him towards that goal."

Today's kick-off of Ganamos con Gore is the formal launch of a continual national effort by Gore 2000 to build on the strong grassroots support that exists for Al Gore in the Hispanic community. As part of her duties as Deputy Campaign Manager and Director of Public Liaison for Gore 2000, Janet Murguia will oversee Ganamos con Gore, along with other constituency outreach efforts.

Jose Villarreal, Gore 2000 National Treasurer, added, "As the first official named to Gore 2000, I am proud to play a leading role in Al Gore's campaign. Al Gore knows how hard Hispanic families work and the pressures they face. We can count on him to stand up for what's right and, when we elect him President, he will make a difference for Hispanic working families and families across America."
