Storyline

With Santos gaining momentum, the Vinick campaign devises a strategy to catch them off-guard by focusing on immigration issues: by taking a pro-immigration stance, they force Santos to spend time courting the Latino vote. A powerful Christian group is nervous about supporting a Republican presidential candidate who is pro-choice, and demands a guarantee that Vinick only appoint pro-life judges. Vinick hopes that the strong religious credentials of his running mate Sullivan will be enough to satisfy the Christian base, but inevitably finds himself in a difficult situation.

Goofs

Former West Virginia Governor and VP candidate Sullivan tells an angry pro-life advocate that he always appointed judges friendly to his own (pro-life) positions when he was governing and would do the same once VP. In real life, judges in West Virginia are not appointed by the Governor or anyone else, but gain the bench through popular elections. See more »
