Plot Synopsis:

During the primaries of an unspecified political party, the frontrunners for the presidential nomination are William Russell and Joe Cantwell. Russell is a highly educated, strictly principled individual, but an affair has distanced him from his wife and he has the ghost of a previous nervous breakdown to overcome. Cantwell is a self-described populist and rabidly patriotic anti-communist. But he is a desperate opportunist, willing to use any means necessary to prevail.

The two presidential hopefuls meet at the nominating convention, where they both vie for the support of the dying former president, Arthur Hockstader. After vacillating between the two, he eventually settles on Russell, but publicly endorses neither. Behind the scenes, the candidates campaign with the help of their wives as Russell learns that Hockstader has offered the vice-presidential place on the ticket to each of the three other candidates. When one of Russell's aides finds a former military comrade of Cantwell's who is willing to make up allegations of a homosexual affair, Cantwell calls his bluff, knowing him to be too morally upstanding to sink to such depths. In the end, one of the candidates does something shocking and unexpected that turns the entire race on its head. Order your The Best Man tickets today to witness this intriguing political drama.
