Stewart was the communications director for Ted Cruz’s 2016 presidential campaign. Prior to that, she was the communications director for Mike Huckabee’s 2016 presidential campaign but left on December 14, 2015. Earlier, Stewart worked as the national press secretary for Rick Santorum’s 2012 presidential campaign and for Michele Bachmann’s campaign during the same election cycle. She has also hosted a talk radio show and worked as a news anchor in Little Rock, Arkansas.

After her roles in television and radio news, Stewart started working for Mike Huckabee as press secretary in 2005 when he was the governor of Arkansas. She later became the press secretary for Huckabee’s 2008 presidential campaign.

During the 2012 presidential election, Stewart initially served as Michele Bachmann’s press secretary. After Bachmann’s campaign ended, she joined Rick Santorum’s campaign in February 2012. Stewart praised Santorum, stating, “Senator Santorum has proven himself to be the true, consistent conservative in this race. Rick’s growing momentum is evidence that voters realize he’s the only candidate with the conservative record we need to stop Mitt Romney and beat President Obama.” While working on Santorum’s campaign, she collaborated with Hogan Gidley, a former colleague from Huckabee’s 2008 campaign.

Following Santorum’s campaign, Stewart worked as a surrogate for Mitt Romney.

On May 7, 2015, it was announced that Stewart would join Huckabee’s 2016 presidential campaign as the communications director. In 2014, she had joined the staff of America Takes Action, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit, which The Washington Post described as “an employment perch for political team.” Her hiring at the nonprofit was an early indication of Huckabee’s plans for a 2016 presidential run. She left Huckabee’s campaign on December 14, 2015.
