The Front Runner Overview

The Front Runner follows the rise and fall of Senator Gary Hart, who captured the imagination of young voters and was considered the overwhelming front runner for the 1988 Democratic presidential nomination when his campaign was sidelined by the story of an extramarital relationship with Donna Rice.

As tabloid journalism and political journalism merged for the first time, Senator Hart was forced to drop out of the race events that left a profound and lasting impact on American politics and the world stage.
