Farrell Seiler wrote, "The effort to persuade Gore to enter the NH primary
officially began with the petition drive which was launched during the
Independence Day 2007 parade in Amherst, New Hampshire... The petition
initiative will continue until November 2, the last day for a presidential
candidate to file for the NH primary. If Gore does not formally enter
the New Hampshire Primary, we then start Plan 'B'."
