MAC DECIDES TO TAKE ACTION IN THE FACE OF GROWING UNREST IN A NEARBY URBAN COMMUNITY, WHICH TURNS OUT TO HAVE TIES TO ONE OF HER
CLOSEST ADVISORS, ON ABC�S �COMMANDER IN CHIEF�
�Ties That Bind� � Mac calls on her new Attorney General to look into the growing urban unrest in nearby Prince George�s County, Maryland, which she learns is where Chief of Staff Jim Gardner is from. At the same time, a friend from Gardner�s past unexpectedly visits him at the White House and gives him a first-hand account of the situation, one that hits closer to home. Meanwhile, Mac is briefed on the situation of the missing surface-to-air missiles that went down in a military plane crash over Pakistan and have now surfaced on the black market, and she must use all means necessary to ensure the weapons don�t fall into the hands of terrorists. On the Hill, Templeton is championing the Templeton Act targeting domestic crime, which Mac threatens to veto, opting for more law enforcement and education over the bill�s calls for tougher sentencing. And when Dickie learns of Vince�s plans for a commitment ceremony with his partner, he urges him not to invite Mac, lest it hurt her in the polls, on �Commander In Chief,� THURSDAY, APRIL 27 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
