John Travolta plays Jack Stanton, an amiable and charismatic governor who has begun a campaign to become POTUS when news of an arrest in his past, as well as an extra-marital affair come to light, which motivates Jack's campaign staff to beat the press to any further dirt by hiring a special investigator named Libby Holden (Kathy Bates) to dig up any more dirt on Jack before the press does.
