The main spokesperson for Mike Huckabee’s bid for the Republican presidential nomination, Alice Stewart, announced her exit from the former Arkansas governor’s campaign.
No further information as to why she left was given. Saying only that she is “no longer” working for Huckabee’s election, Stewart stated that she will no longer function as the communications director nor will she fulfill any other role.
The campaign released the following short statement:
“Alice Stewart is no longer with the Huckabee for President campaign. Hogan Gidley will handle all media operations moving forward.”
Stewart has other experience with presidential campaigning. She was the press secretary for former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum in 2012. She was also the host of a radio talk show in Little Rock, Arkansas after that election.
The Huckabee campaign seems to have a hit a rough spot, polling at the bottom of the line-up of Republican contenders for president. He also did not succeed to post decent fundraising data. He was also overlooked last week as the social conservative Bob Vander Plaats of Iowa endorsed Huckabee’s political rival Ted Cruz.
