WASHINGTON: US vice-president Al Gore has appointed Catherine

’Kiki’ Moore as his press secretary in the running for the Democratic

nomination for next year’s US presidential election.



Moore is currently a partner at Washington-based communications strategy

firm Dewey Square Group, which specialises in communications

strategies.



Her past experience in Democratic politics includes a spell as press

secretary for the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic

Leadership Council, an organisation headed by Gore adviser Al From.



Tony Coelho, general chairman of the Gore 2000 campaign, said: ’She is a

talented communications strategist and a veteran of national political

campaigns. Throughout her career, Kiki has demonstrated a remarkable

ability to clearly communicate the policy positions of the Democratic

Party and the Clinton/Gore team.’



Moore takes up the task on 7 September. The announcement comes at a time

when Gore’s campaign will benefit most from a spokesperson with national

experience, particularly in the light of recent stories about the

campaign’s lethargy in the New York Times and the Wall Street

Journal.



Gore has also appointed deputy director of legislative affairs Janet

Murguia as deputy campaign manager and director of public liaison.

Murguia takes up her post on 13 September.



Gore’s main contender for the Democratic nomination is former senator

Bill Bradley. George Bush Jr is the front-runner for the Republican

nomination.
