Jessica flies in for her old friend Kathleen Lane's campaign in the senatorial primaries and accepts to replace her suddenly deserted speech-writer.

Meanwhile, Kathleen's rich and generous, much older husband, Jackson Lane, also suspected of financial faults, speaks up for her innocence, but can that save her candidature?
