"We have joined forces with The West Wing because winning Wisconsin this November is crucial to saving American democracy," Louis-Dreyfus, 61, told The Hollywood Reporter. "And also because when MAGA Republicans are beaten and democracy thrives and flourishes, Veep seems much funnier and less sad."
