Synopsis: Claghorn gets into some financial difficulties and is forced by a machine-political gang to enter a race for state senator against his wife who appears to have a good chance to beat the political hack backed by the machine

Reaction: Pretty fun and it's definitely interesting to hear Claghorn speak.
