Missouri took the stage at the Democratic National Convention on the day the party nominated Al Gore for president. Three Missourians spoke on the day that ended with the roll call of the states officially nominating Gore, when Missouri committed all 92 delegates to Vice President Al Gore. Governor Carnahan spoke of his campaign for senate, St. Louis Congressman Richard Gephardt promised change if he became House Speaker, and a nurse from Troy did a repeat performance of his advocacy of HMO legislation that he first offered during the president’s visit to Columbia.
