Her body was discovered outdoors in the Bellevue neighborhood of northern Virginia early Saturday morning. Law enforcement sources have ruled out the possibility of foul play, indicating a medical emergency as the likely cause.

Mark Thompson, CNN’s CEO, expressed deep sorrow at Stewart’s passing, highlighting her exceptional contributions to the network. Stewart, born on March 11, 1966, in Atlanta, began her career as a local reporter and later served in various key roles within the political landscape.

Stewart’s career journey saw her working closely with prominent figures like Mike Huckabee, both in Arkansas and during his 2008 presidential campaign. She also played crucial roles in the 2012 presidential bids of Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum, before serving as the communications director for Ted Cruz’s 2016 GOP campaign.

Wolf Blitzer, during an interview on ‘CNN Newsroom,’ praised Stewart’s intellect and ability to offer valuable perspectives to viewers. He lauded her for enhancing the audience’s understanding of current affairs and the political landscape.

In her role at CNN, Stewart aimed to provide an independent conservative viewpoint, steering clear of extreme affiliations. She was known for her moderate and sensible approach, which garnered respect across the political spectrum.

Additionally, Stewart co-hosted the ‘2020 Democrats’ podcast alongside fellow CNN commentator Maria Cardona. Cardona, deeply saddened by Stewart’s sudden demise, shared heartfelt words about her colleague’s warm personality and positive impact in an industry often marred by negativity.

Outside of her media engagements, Stewart was actively involved in the Institute of Politics at Harvard University’s Kennedy School as an esteemed member of their Institute of Politics Senior Advisory Committee.

In her leisure time, Stewart was an enthusiastic runner, participating in marathons and races like the TCS New York City Marathon and the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10 Mile event. Her passion for running and fitness endeared her to many, showcasing a different facet of her vibrant personality.

This tragic news of Alice Stewart’s passing has left a void in the political journalism landscape, with colleagues and admirers mourning the loss of a dedicated professional and a warm-hearted individual.
