Holy Cow 2000: The Strange Election of George W. Bush
Late on election night, the 2000 presidential contest hinged on the electoral votes of Florida, where the Republican George W. Bush held a precarious lead in the popular vote over Al Gore, the vice president and Democratic standard-bearer. Victory in Florida would enable Bush to overcome Gore’s electoral-vote margin and secure the presidency.
