Report says Gore will not run in 2004…

The Associated Press, just minutes ago, released an article saying Al Gore will not run for President in 2004. Will Lester’s article quotes an unnamed source. Apparently Gore may make an announcement on 60 Minutes tonight.

UPDATE (3:25 p.m.): AP has an update.

UPDATE (7:29 p.m.): It’s official. Here’s Dan Balz’ article for The Washington Post. And Adam Nagourney for The New York Times.

UPDATE (7:59 p.m.): I wonder what will happen to these poll numbers by the middle of next week.
