Politico reports
that Little Rock talk show host Alice Stewart has left her post as communications director for Mike Huckabee's flagging campaign for the GOP nomination. Stewart wouldn't comment on the circumstances of her departure:

Stewart said Monday that she left her role as communications director and was no longer working for the campaign in any capacity. She declined to provide more details, saying only that she's "no longer" with the campaign.

In 2012, Stewart served as the press secretary for former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum's presidential campaign. Following the election, Stewart hosted a radio talk show in Little Rock, Arkansas.

It's yet another sign that Huckabee's days on the campaign trail are likely numbered.

Judging from Stewart's Twitter feed, the separation perhaps happened a bit earlier: On Dec. 7, last Monday, her torrent of daily Huck-centric tweets suddenly stopped cold. 

Aside from Huckabee and Santorum, Stewart also worked for yet another evangelical presidential flavor of the month, former Minnesota Rep. Michelle Bachmann. Before that, she served as press secretary for Arkansas Secretary of State Mark Martin.
