The Santos house features three different staircases in three different episodes. In The West Wing: Impact Winter
(2004), the staircase inside the front door to the house can be seen leading away from the door to the left of the hall. In The West Wing: Running Mates
(2006), the staircase can be seen coming down from left to right behind the door in a number of scenes, In The West Wing: Election Day: Part 1
(2006) and The West Wing: Election Day: Part 2
(2006), the staircase has changed yet again, now curving upwards from the right of the door. Either Helen Santos has been doing some extensive remodeling, or different sets were used in each episode. See more

She switched the states; Nebraska is north of Kansas and has 5 electoral votes while Kansas is the southern neighbor of Nebraska and has 6. See more
