In the spirit of such hit films as Primary Colors and The War Room, SEE HOW THEY RUN is the ultimate insider’s look at campaign politics. In 1999, celebrity Mayor Willie Brown ruled San Francisco and appeared to be a shoo-in for re-election to a second term. Twelve candidates wanted his job, but of these pretenders to the throne, the only threat was a write-in candidate--openly gay city supervisor and stand-up comedian Tom Ammiano.
