Political parties
MainOpposition

The main party in the Veep universe is a major political party in the United States. It is the party of Selina Meyer, the 45th and 47th President of the United States.

Its most notable members are current President Richard Splett, former President Selina Meyer, and former President Stuart Hughes.

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

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 is also economically liberal, as Meyer supported the Families First Bill, which would use tax dollars to support low-income families.

The party seems to also have a very socially conservative wing, as evidenced by Buddy Calhoun's religious opposition to gay marriage, and Jonah Ryan's anti-immigrant rhetoric.

2016 Vice Presidential nominee, Tom James

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

Kemi Talbot was elected to two terms as president between 2024 and 2040.
