Gore visits Baltimore for party fund-raiser


Vice President Al Gore attended a Democratic National Committee fund-raiser last night at the Tindeco Wharf apartment complex in Canton in Southeast Baltimore.

About 30 people attended the event, which was sponsored by C. William Struever, president of Struever Bros. Eccles & Rouse, a Baltimore development firm.

Gore arrived at the four-story brick apartment building about 7 p.m. His motorcade was accompanied by about a dozen city police officers on motorcycles.

Among those attending the event were Maryland Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, sporting a Clinton-Gore campaign button, and Baltimore Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke, an enthusiastic ++ supporter of President Clinton.

The mayor credited Clinton-Gore for sending federal money -- including $100 million for the Empowerment Zone -- to the city.
