Stewart won the Democratic Party nomination in 2004, but lost disastrously, losing 49 out of 50 states.
Season 3 Edit
Stewart appears at Senator Rick Cowgill's funeral in Some New Beginnings. Selina, who is considering a run for President, meets him. Ben refers to him as the "bubonic plague of the party". Stewart blames himself for his loss, as opposed to his staff or the voters. Selina seems encouraged, saying getting the nomination should be easy if "that walking bag of wrist slits" got it.
