When long-term congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) commits a major public gaffe before an upcoming election, a pair of ultra-wealthy CEOs plot to put up a rival candidate and gain influence over their North Carolina district. Their man, naive Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), is the director of the local Tourism Center.
At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of his new benefactors' support, a cut-throat campaign manager and his family's political connections, he soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about.
Directed by Jay Roach, THE CAMPAIGN is written by Chris Henchy and Shawn Harwell, from a story by Adam McKay, Chris Henchy and Shawn Harwell. It is produced by Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Jay Roach and Zach Galifianakis. Amy Sayres, Jon Poll and Chris Henchy serve as executive producers.
