has released a new trailer online in which Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis trade insults as rival candidates running for Congress.
Ferrell plays Cam Brady, a long-term congressman expecting to walk into a fifth term in office unopposed. Sadly for him, he's reckoned without Marty Huggins, a local simpleton who decides he's the man to give Brady a run for his money.
On the face of it, it seems like a no-contest, what with Brady's slick, crowd-pleasing demeanour, and Huggins' general idiocy. However, that's not quite how it plays out, with Huggins' down-home innocence providing surprisingly popular with the voters.

Directed by Jay Roach and co-starring Jason Sudeikis, Brian Cox, John Lithgow and Dan Aykroyd, The Campaign
opens in the UK on 28 September 2012. He did indeed just punch a baby!
