Alice Stewart, who recently quit Mike Huckabee’s faltering presidential campaign, has joined the Ted Cruz campaign, Politico reports. Stewart is a former Little Rock TV and radio hand who’s worked for a variety of Republican politicians over the years. She’ll be national spokeswoman for Cruz.

Small irony: Stewart was among the Huckabee forces who stiff-armed Cruz when he tried to horn in a rally Huckabee arranged with Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who refused to approve marriage licenses for same-sex couples.


Stewart quit the campaign in mid-December with no explanation amid news that the campaign was cutting back staff. Later, however, she disputed a Huckabee explanation that Stewart was exhausted. Stewart, a marthoner, apparently got her political wind back.
