INTERNATIONAL: Fabiani called in to Gore’s presidential campaign

WASHINGTON, DC: Vice-president Al Gore’s presidential election bid has stepped up a gear by bringing in former White House media relations head Mark Fabiani.

WASHINGTON, DC: Vice-president Al Gore’s presidential election bid

has stepped up a gear by bringing in former White House media relations

head Mark Fabiani.



Fabiani, who starts this month as deputy campaign manager for

communications, is a Washington veteran having served in the special

counsel office of the Clinton White House before the Monica Lewinsky sex

and campaign-finance scandals last year.



Fabiani joins a PR team that some observers think has underperformed so

far. The team, headed by campaign manager Mike Whouley, has come under

fire for running a negative campaign rather than focusing on the reasons

why Gore would make a good president.



Democratic consultant Steven McMahon said the back-and-forth bickering

between Gore and republican nominee Bush is ’typical in a high-stakes

race’ and that the vice-president should focus on communicating

traditional Democratic concerns such as healthcare, education and social

security.



The new President will be sworn in in January 2001.
