WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A spokesman for Al Gore is shooting down an online report Monday that Gore has decided to run for president in 2004.

Internet columnist Matt Drudge, quoting an anonymous source he described as a "very top aide" who recently spent an evening with Gore, reports that the former vice president is "determined to give it another try."

But Gore spokesman Jano Cabrera said the Drudge Report is inaccurate. "With all due respect to Mr. Drudge, I have a better-placed and more-definitive source -- Al Gore," Cabrera said. "And I can tell you that he has not made up his mind."

Gore has said publicly that he will announce early next year whether he will run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2004.
