Soon after winning the Senate vote on January 5, Montez announced that Andrew Doyle, Vice President under Selina Meyer, would become Secretary of State. The deal was orchestrated behind the scenes, as Doyle maneuvered the Senate vote in exchange for Secretary of State, as an act of revenge when Meyer offered Secretary of State to opposition Congressman Paul Graves.
On January 19, 2017, MSNBC reported that Charlie Baird, a banker who briefly dated President Meyer in late 2016, was tapped by Montez to become the Secretary of the Treasury.

The 2016 election saw the opposition ticket of Senator Bill O'Brien of Arizona and Senator Laura Montez of New Mexico tie with the party ticket of President Selina Meyer of Maryland and Senator Tom James of Maine.
In the contingent election held in Congress in January 2017, O'Brien and Meyer tied in the House vote to determine the president. Despite Tom James being favored to win the Senate vote where vice president-elect becomes president, the vote ended in a tie, where Vice President Andrew Doyle broke party lines to vote for Montez. Soon after, House Speaker Jim Marwood announced that the House will not vote again on president.
