Story intro

Gary Hart, a U.S. Senator from Colorado, is the widely accepted frontrunner in the race for the 1988 Democratic presidential nomination. After losing the 1984 nomination to former Vice President Walter Mondale, Hart decides to run for President of the United States. At one point during his campaign, against the will of his manager Bill Dixon, Hart challenges the press and public to "follow him around" while he's not campaigning on weekends. This proves to be a mistake when in 1987, photos of him and journalist Donna Rice are published by reporters from The Miami Herald. In a desperate attempt to clear his name, Hart tries to fix his reputation at a news event concerning the affair but to no avail. Because of the consequences of his actions, Hart is disgraced and forced to drop out of the campaign, while his wife Lee remains by his side.
