Gore campaign outlines debate proposal

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Reiterating the call for a series of debates, Al Gore's Democratic presidential campaign has sent a letter to the camp of Bill Bradley, challenging the former New Jersey senator to square off with the vice president in several specific forums.

The letter to Bradley campaign chairman Doug Berman proposes the following debate possibilities:

--A Nov. 4 debate, proposed and sponsored by several New Hampshire news organizations.

--The major Sunday morning talk shows.

--ABC's "Nightline."

--CNN's "Larry King Live."

Gore and Bradley have agreed to one face-to-face meeting this year -- a joint CNN/WMUR town hall meeting Oct. 27. In an Oct. 1 letter to the Gore campaign, Berman, the Bradley campaign chair, said Bradley would wait until 2000 before agreeing to other debates with the vice president.

After almost a year of not uttering his opponent's name publicly, Gore has dramatically changed his campaign strategy in the last few weeks amid slipping poll numbers and disappointing fund-raising figures.

His call for regular debates with Bradley is part of the new packaging, along with a major staff reshuffling and campaign headquarters move to Nashville, Tenn.
