One Sunday morning the Albrights plan on a trip to the farm, in their penthouse apartment, Vern Albright is mistaken for Mrs Odet. Everybody seems to be fooled by a mix up in dressing robes when Vern is in a state of undress, but what will Mrs Odet have to say on the matter? The whole gang make their trip to the family farm. On the way, Margie notices signs posted for elections for mayor, and it’s the thing Vern might use to get the road conditions improved. Does he actually want to run, or is Margie and the gang just pushing him into it?
Vern files papers to run, and Margie enthusiastically starts work on his campaign. Their energetic campaign is derailed when a gangster threatens the new competition to the local politicians. Now that Vern is excited about the race, will Margie be able to convince him to withdraw?
Elections can be like a horserace, and with campaign promises to clean up gambling, the metaphore becomes a little more real. How will Vern do against the racketeers who is his competitor in his run for the office of mayor?
