‘West Wing’ Reunion Doubles as Campaign Ad for Judicial Candidate

In one the weirdest (and most effective) political ads of the season, nearly the entire cast of The West Wing has reunited to shoot a campaign ad — in character — for a candidate for Michigan’s Supreme Court. The whole gang is here — Josh, Toby, President Bartlett, even C.J.’s quiet secretary — walking and talking in that old Aaron Sorkin style to discuss the complicated “crisis” of people not voting on non-partisan judicial ballots. Along the way, they manage to work in an endorsement for Bridget Mary McCormack, a University of Michigan law professor who is appearing on the (you guessed it) non-partisan portion of the Michigan ballot.
