The West Wing: The Al Smith Dinner

An attack ad on Santos sponsored by a pro-life organization puts both campaigns in a bind when the focus turns to the candidates' stance on abortion. Donna joins the Santos campaign team, but is hired by Lou, not Josh. Meanwhile, Will takes over Toby's old job and is forced to face the press buzz surrounding the leak investigation.
