CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Former President Carter and his vice president, Walter Mondale, are teaming up again - this time at a fundraiser to help Carter's son, Jack, in his longshot bid to oust Nevada Republican Sen. John Ensign.

"It will be a real bit of old Americana," Jack Carter said of the event scheduled Friday in Minneapolis at a private home on the Mississippi River.

While Jimmy Carter and Mondale see each other periodically, Jack Carter said it's the first time in more than 20 years that they've been together at a fundraiser. He also said his father has done few such events over the years.

Carter is challenging Ensign, who had $3.3 million in the bank at the end of June. Carter had $482,000 in cash on hand then and says he's down to about $380,000.

2. Great news! Mondale was the first person I ever voted for in an election.
I hope Jack Carter wins!

4. Carter/Mondale was my first vote.
And I sent money to Mondale when he ran after Senator Wellstone's death, and I received the nicest letter I have ever gotten from a politician. I just wish Harry Reid would give Chip Carter more than token support in Nevada, but he won't.
