The West Wing Question

What happened to Sam Seaborn?

I know that once Will Bailey won the represenative election in the California 47th, and Sam left to represent the dead candidate, but do we ever learn who won? What happened?

Martin Sheen was making 300 grand per episode and the rest of the senior staff cast was making 75 grand per episode. Rob Lowe wanted more money and the show wouldn't budge, so he walked. Very unlike Sam.

He comes back in the Seventh Season, but he leaves to run for office in Orange County because he promised Will he would. After he is defeated, he finds another job, back in the legal world.

That was so anoying. He assumingly leaves to be a lawyer again but it is so out of character. If they knew Rob Lowe was leaving they could have given him a real place to go. Sam hated being a standard lawyer hence him getting into politics, and there were all those hints that he would one day do great things, like when they're playing chess and the president says to him 'you'll run for president one day sam' . That was such a silly story line and could so easily have been tied up better.
