George W. Bush


Whom did he defeat to win the 2000 presidential election?

Bush defeated Democrat Al Gore. Gore had served in the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate for Tennessee before serving two terms as Clinton’s vice president. The 2000 presidential election turned out to be arguably the most controversial election in American history. Gore won the popular vote and some networks actually named Gore the winner. However, Bush ended up capturing the electoral vote—and the presidency—by a vote of 271 to 266.
