Gore 2000

The Gore Family
From the simple lessons about work and responsibility he learned from his parents, to his strong, lifelong partnership with his wife Tipper, to their four children -- Al Gore's family is his proudest accomplishment of all. "My faith sustains and renews me," says Gore, "and we all find fulfillment in our families."

Tennesse Values

While most Americans know Al Gore for his leadership in Congress and as Vice President, it is the families and values of Tennessee that have most shaped his life and career. It was on his parents' family farm in Carthage that he first learned the importance of caring for the environment. And after his service in Vietnam, Al Gore returned home to Tennessee to attend Divinity School and to work nights as a Police Reporter and City Hall Reporter for the Nashville Tennessean. He and Tipper started their family and purchased their own farm in Carthage in 1973, which they still call home. He later on attended Vanderbilt Law School.

It was his determination to serve the families of Tennessee that first led him to run for Congress in 1976 -- and throughout his sixteen years in Congress, he worked hard to address their cares and concerns. During his House and Senate years, Gore would fly back to Tennessee nearly every weekend, to hold town meetings in every part of the state.
