The first is the person selected by the delegates of a political party to be the party's nominee for President of the United States, typically at the party's national nominating convention.[1] The nominee also may be referred to as the "presidential candidate."

The second meaning is someone nominated by the sitting U.S. President for appointment to any of numerous governmental positions, under the President's executive authority, subject to the approval of Congress.
