The Progressive Party convention is deadlocked for governor, so both sides nominate the dark horse Zachary Hicks.

Russell refuses to marry Blake, while Joe keeps people away from Blake's office. Blake teaches Hicks a speech by Lincoln. At the debate when the conservative candidate Underwood recites the same speech, Blake exposes him as a plagiarist.
