|Main • Opposition|
The main party rivals the opposition party.
The color blue is associated with the party.
Despite Selina Meyer winning states Democrats traditionally win in the 2016 presidential election, the writers and creators of Veep insist that the main party is not affiliated with either the Democratic or Republican party. In fact, the words Democrat and Republican have never been used in the entirety of Veep. It's entirely possible the Veep universe uses different political parties entirely.

Political positions[edit | edit source]
The party is divided on the issue of abortion. In the 2012 presidential election, Hughes and Meyer were elected as pro-choice candidates. Hughes later reversed his stance. George Maddox was reported as being against abortion, while Danny Chung claimed to have been liberal on the position.
The main party also supports progressive economic policies, as Meyer supported the Families First Bill, which would use tax dollars to support low-income families.
Electoral history[edit | edit source]
2004 election[edit | edit source]
2012 election[edit | edit source]
2016 election[edit | edit source]
President Hughes reputation was tarnished following the Uzbek Hostage Crisis, and facing mounting criticism from both parties, decided not to to run for another term. Vice president Meyer then announced she would run for president.
Due to his his wife's dissipating mental health, Hughes announced he would resign immediately in January 2016, and Meyer ascended to the Presidency, while still running to be President. Her appointed vice president Andrew Doyle decided he would not be her running mate for the election, and was replaced at the party convention by former senator Tom James.
The 2016 election ended in an electoral college tie, which led to a contingent election in Congress. Neither presidential nominee was able to secure a majority in the House of Representatives. The Senate produced a tie during its Vice-presidential vote. Sitting vice president Doyle then crossed the aisle and broke the tie in favor of the Opposition party's vice presidential nominee, Laura Montez. Montez succeeded Meyer as president of the United States in 2017.
2020 election[edit | edit source]
Selina Meyer and running mate Jonah Ryan won the 2020 election against incumbent president Laura Montez. It is implied that their ticket received help from the Chinese government in order to win the election.
After 2020[edit | edit source]
Selina Meyer either lost re-election in 2024 or decided not to run again.
Kemi Talbot was elected to two terms as president between 2024 and 2040.
Current President Richard Splett won the elections of 2040 and 2044.
