Trivia

It is visible that none of the campaign staff seems to have voted as through out the day they seems to have stayed in the hotel monitoring the situation of the election, especially Josh (Bradley Whitford) noting how cold it is in Texas after the death of Leo (John Spencer), which means he has not yet stepped outside apart from going to the hospital.

Goofs

In the Houston airport scene at 6:36AM, a number of American Airlines DC-10 or MD-11 aircraft are seen on the ramp. American Airlines would have retired all of those aircraft types by 2000, 6 years prior to the election. Additionally, they would not have a large presence at Houston which is primarily a Continental hub nor would they have such long range aircraft servicing it. See more »
