As Ohio's Democratic primary nears, charming Gov. Mike Morris (George Clooney) seems a shoo-in to win the nomination over his opponent, Sen. Pullman (Michael Mantell) . Morris' idealistic press secretary, Stephen Meyers (Ryan Gosling) believes in his candidate's integrity and the democratic process. But, Meyers' meeting with Pullman's campaign manager (Paul Giamatti) and a dalliance with a young intern (Evan Rachel Wood) set in motion a chain of events that threaten Morris' election chances.
