An idealistic staffer for a new presidential candidate gets a crash course on dirty politics during his stint on the campaign trail.
I'm not a Christian. I'm not an Atheist. I'm not Jewish. I'm not Muslim. My religion, what I believe in is called the Constitution of United States of America.
With the Ohio primary on the horizon, only two Democratic candidates remain and both are vying for the endorsement of North Carolina Senator Franklin Thompson. In the film, an endorsement from Thompson is dealt with as swinging 356 pledged delegates. However, in 2008, North Carolina carried with it only 134 delegates (115 pledged delegates, 19 superdelegates). Furthermore, in the Democratic nominating process, superdelegates cannot swing delegates. Of the 115 pledged delegates, they are proportionally awarded based on primary results.
