Al Gore represented Tennessee in the House and in the Senate. That statement is true whether you’re talking about Gore the father or Gore the son. Each man served in the House first (Sr. from 1939-1952 and Jr. from 1977-1984) and then was elected to Senate. The elder Gore served in the Senate from 1953 to 1970; the younger Gore, from 1985-1992.
The red button is from one of Gore Sr.’s campaigns; the blue one was for supporters of Gore Jr.
