The Midterms


Episode Info

The staff of the Bartlet Administration attempts to cope in the aftermath of a shooting that saw both the president and Josh injured. Toby has a fire in his belly and is eager to go after hate groups with ferocity, while Josh is having trouble taking time to recover while the world goes on without him. "The Midterms" is perhaps best remembered for a scathing speech President Bartlet delivers to a right-wing radio host (Claire Yarlett) who uses the Bible to support her homophobic views.
