    A top Democratic aide has said Al Gore will not be seeking a 2016 run, despite rumors and a Buzzfeed article stating otherwise.

    Former presidential candidate Al Gore will not seek a presidential run in 2016 despite rumors to the contrary, a top Democratic Party source told NBC News. 

    A BuzzFeed report Thursday claimed that Gore's supporters have begun trying to figure out whether there is a path for the former vice president in the race. But the top Democratic source told NBC News there was nothing substantive happening along those lines. 

    Gore has faced speculation about a second presidential run since he lost the election to George W. Bush in 2000.
