The 2020 presidential campaign of Selina Meyer, the former President of the United States from 2016 to 2017, was announced in March 2019.

Campaign[edit | edit source]

Selina announced her campaign in March 2019 at the birthplace of Susan B. Anthony in Adams, Massachusetts.

In May 2019, Meyer participated in the first Democratic debate, where she unveiled her new campaign motto, "Man Up!". Meyer was considered to be the winner of the debate.

In the months following the debate, Meyer would find herself upstaged by Senator Kemi Talbot's campaign. Meyer's campaign would continue to falter. In February 2020, Talbot won the Iowa caucus, with Meyer making a come-from-behind second place finish.

On February 18, 2020, Meyer won the New Hampshire primary decisively. During her campaign in South Carolina, Meyer would achieve assistance from the Chinese government in an effort to rig the election. Meyer was declared the winner in South Carolina on February 23.

During the Super Tuesday campaign, Meyer's financial improprieties at the Meyer Fund would make headlines. However, the apparent death of Andrew Meyer on March 1, 2020, would inspire New York prosecutors to drop the investigation.

In April 2020, with the campaign continuing, Meyer attended the Nobel Peace Summit in Oslo, Norway, where she accepted the Peace Summit Award. During this time, headlines that she droned an elephant drew ire from animal rights activists.

The Meyer campaign finished the primaries with 1,817 delegates, falling short of the 2,368 delegate threshold needed to win the nomination.

At the 2020 National Convention, Meyer achieved the nomination and selected former congressman Jonah Ryan as her running mate. The Meyer-Ryan ticket would go on to win the 2020 presidential election against Laura Montez.
