    make a bid for the presidency

    "She did not hesitate to help him make a bid for the presidency."
    Does it mean:
    "She wholeheartedly helped him so he could make every effort
    for the work of the president."
    1. Generally speaking, is he the president of a nation (like the USA)?
    2. Was he the president when she helped?
    Thank you.

    When she got the chance to help, she did it immediately and without any doubts. He was not president when she helped. It sounds like presidency of a country, but it could be some other kind that also requires a campaign.
