See How They Run- Movie on SF Mayor's Race

The Knox County Democratic Party is excited  to be showing "See How They Run", a movie on the 1999 San Francisco mayoral race, which stars our Truman Day speaker Tom Ammiano.

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. What ensued was a David vs. Goliath showdown mired in intense political backstabbing and media fighting that, lucky for us, was all captured on film.

A sharp-witted, scandalous expose of an historic, only-in-San Francisco grassroots campaign, SEE HOW THEY RUN features a host of well-known celebrities and political figures including Reverend Jesse Jackson, Sean Penn, Regis and Kathy Lee, Bill Maher and others to ultimately reveal all the behind-the-scenes mud-slinging, back room brawls and daily dramas that together helped shape this one-of-a-kind race.
