Huckabee aide joins Baker

Posted By on Wed, Oct 21, 2009 at 2:25 PM

Alice Stewart, former press aide to Gov. Mike Huckabee, has joined Gilbert Baker's Republican campaign for U.S. Senate as deputy campaign manager and communications director.


U. S. Senate Candidate Gilbert Baker announced today the hiring of former Huckabee for President National Press Secretary Alice Stewart to serve as Deputy Campaign Manager and Communications Director.  Baker is running to unseat incumbent U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln.

“I’m excited to have someone with Alice’s contacts as well as her knowledge of Arkansas politics on our team,” Sen. Baker said.  “Her experience on the state and national level will be a great asset as we work to deliver the message of common sense, conservative leadership.”

Stewart worked as National Press Secretary on the Mike Huckabee for President Campaign.  She served as Press Secretary for former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and has recently worked as Communications Director for the Republican Party of Arkansas.  Prior to politics,  Stewart worked as a television news anchor and reporter.
“I’m honored to be a part of this winning team,” Stewart said.  “I’ve always known Sen. Baker to be a man of great character and a leader who makes decisions based on what’s best for his constituents. During these trying economic times, we need an enthusiastic Senator who will protect the pocketbooks and represent the values of Arkansans.”  
This announcement comes on the heels of tremendous third quarter fundraising numbers for Sen. Baker who outraised all of his Republican opponents with more than $510,000 in contributions, which is almost five times that of his GOP challengers.

A recent Rasmussen Report shows Sen. Baker leading Sen. Lincoln 47% to 39%
