So, how does the movie end??
When Cam takes things to the next level and seduces Mitzi (Marty's wife), Mitch (his campaign manager) quits.
Wattley keeps Marty focused, and when he is ahead in the polls he is brought before the Motch brothers, who tell Marty about their plans for 'insourcing' and building a Chinese sweatshop in his district. When Marty refuses to play ball, Wattley joins Cam's team as campaign manager, and Cam is back leading in the polls.
The day of the election, Marty blows his entire budget and life savings on an advert to appear across all the major networks where he comes clean and owns up to his mistakes. The public go for it, and vote for Marty.
It makes no difference as the Motch Bros switch the ballot boxes so Cam is still declared the winner.
Cam takes to the stage, but has a change of heart and turns on the Motch Bros, revealing their plans to the media. He then steps down, giving his place to Marty. He is congratulated by Mitch, who wants to join his team again.
As it ends, the Motch Brothers are at home thinking about their next move, when the maid from the Huggins home (who is actually surprisingly talented!) shows up and serves them a summons.
