A campaign finance bill sponsored by Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Russell Feingold (D-WI) was proposed and rejected by the Senate due to questions about its constitutionality and one-sidedness. Al Gore backed the bill strongly, and even claimed ‘Unlike Senator [Bill] Bradley, I was a co-sponsor of it’ in the November 24, 1999 New York Times. But as noted by Bill Bradley’s campaign, ‘Gore not only did not, but could not have co-sponsored McCain-Feingold. Russ Feingold was not elected until 1992. Al Gore quite the Senate in 1992 to become Vice President. Feingold and Gore never served together.’ Al Gore
Bradley Press Release, December 7, 1999. It was thus impossible for Gore to have co-sponsored this bill.
