Following news of an accident at a nuclear power plant in California, the White House springs into action to try and contain the leak and address public concerns. The Santos and Vinick campaigns weigh the responsibility of helping to fix the situation against the opportunity to take advantage of the situation politically. The situation in Kazakhstan deteriorates, with China and Russia both mobilizing their armies over disputed elections. Written by Murray Chapman
