While Al Gore continues his legal quest for the Capitol, Democrats in Missouri offer unwavering support for the Vice President. Missouri Democrats see the legal battle and vote recounts as a fair part of the democratic process.

State Auditor Claire McCaskill says Gore's legal initiatives are standard practice and says similar actions are taking place across the country.
