Meet Scandal's Presidential Candidates & Find Out Who Exposed Olivia's Big Secret

5 May 2016 8:05 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

After a hard fought race, Scandal's presidential election is finally down to two candidates—but not before the crew (meaning Olivia Pope & Associates on Team Mellie Grant, President Fitz, Abby & co. on Team Susan Ross, Cyrus and Team Francisco Vargas, and Papa Pope and Jake on Team Edison Davis) managed to take down the horrific Hollis Doyle. The big case of "Trump Card" saw Mellie and Susan team up to take down Doyle (while the democrats sat by and watched). It took a bit of scheming—and pooling their resources in a momentary cease fire—but they managed to do it when Olivia leaked audio of Hollis demeaning his voter base to Sally Langston, who played it on air. Bye, Hollis and your »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead if you have not watched Season 5, Episode 13 of “Scandal,” which aired on Thursday, March 10.

Looks like Mellie isn’t the only eyeing the Oval Office. On Thursday’s “Scandal,” a new presidential candidate emerged and he’s in the form of a Cyrus Beene (Jeff Perry) manipulation.

Governer Francisco Vargas (Ricardo Chavira, “Desperate Housewives”), the newly-minted American hero who survived the Capitol shooting in last week’s episode found himself victim of Cyrus’s master plan to persuade him to run for president. Cyrus has had his eye on the Mexican-American politician since his debut two episodes back when secretly scouted him out, in a move displaying his disloyalty to President Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young).

‘Scandal’s’ Ricardo Chavira Talks Playing Mexican-American Politician, Blasts Donald Trump ‘Bandwagon’

9 March 2016 4:57 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Desperate Housewives” alum Ricardo Chavira has returned to ABC with a recurring role on “Scandal,” and his storyline ramps up in this Thursday’s episode. Chavira plays Mexican-American Governor Francisco Vargas in Shonda Rhimes’ hit series, which is no stranger to making political statements — especially during the 2016 presidential campaign season.

“I don’t think anything that ‘Scandal’ could do could mirror what’s going on in the real world right now. I think what Shonda would come up with and what this show is revealing is far more presidential than anything we are being offered in reality,” Chavira tells Variety, speaking on the U.S. primaries and the colorful showcase of presidential hopefuls, including Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

“This guy, when we meet him in the first episode at the town hall meeting, he’s talking about wanting to establish free education in the state »
