Overview
Solidly Democratic Massachusetts went solidly for Gore as he won the state's 12 electoral votes with a plurality of 737,985 votes (27.30 percentage points).  Gore carried all counties.  Ralph Nader's 6.42% was his third best showing of any state.  Massachusetts came to the fore on Oct. 3 when the first presidential debate was held at UMass in Boston; both sides mobilized their supporters, and Ralph Nader, Pat Buchanan and Harry Browne were also on hand in the city.  Gore and Lieberman had also visited the state earlier, holding a rally and a fundraising gala in Boston on Sept. 13.
