On the Trail

Having worked the West Coast earlier in the week, Texas Governor George W. Bush was bearing down on the Midwestern states again today, campaigning in Missouri, Illinois and Wisconsin. Bush warned that Gore's plans for seniors were just a "hop, skip and a jump" from nationalizing the U.S. health care system. Gore, meanwhile, campaigned in Illinois as well and had plenty of warnings of his own. In Chicago he told a crowd that "prosperity is on the ballot," and warned against Bush's environmental record. NPR's Steve Inskeep reports.
