'Political Animals': Elaine Throws Down Gauntlet, Tells President Garcetti She's Running Against Him (VIDEO)

Elaine Barrish finally told President Garcetti of her plans to run against him in the upcoming election on the latest "Political Animals" (Sun., 10 p.m. ET on USA). It was because Garcetti had decided to back China's decision to allow 100 of their own men perish in a down submarine.

But allowing lives to perish for political reasons simply wasn't something Barrish could stand, and so she went to his office and told him what was going to happen: She was going to resign in 48 hours as his Secretary of State, and then she would run against him. But first, they were going to save those lives.

"Knowing you’re gonna run against me? That gives me a hell of an advantage, Elaine," Garcetti told her. "And don’t for one minute think I won’t use it."

That's exactly what Garcetti wanted. She wants to beat him at the top of his game.

Find out what happens in the final two episodes of the debut season of "Political Animals" on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on USA.
