According to Fundraiser, Mike was later the one who ran her failed campaign to become President of the United States. According to the Veep intro, Meyer did very well in New Hampshire but did poorly on Super Tuesday. In the primaries, she lasted until at least Oregon.

The two biggest mistakes according to Dan were that "she spent too much time in New Hampshire and the attack ads in Oregon came up way too soon. It made you look mean before you had to be mean."
