    Career

    In 2012, during and after her father's presidential campaign, Huntsman appeared as a political commentator for ABC News in Washington, D.C., and Good Morning America in New York City. In October 2012, Huntsman was profiled in ABC News's 'Five Questions,' a part of This Week with George Stephanopoulos. In August 2012, she was interviewed by Brian Williams on Rock Center about Mitt Romney's run for president and her own relationship with the Mormon faith. Previously, she held a position at the international public relations firm Burson-Marsteller.

    On July 16, 2013, she announced that she would be joining MSNBC's afternoon news program The Cycle, filling the vacancy left by S.E. Cupp. Huntsman is the second replacement host to join the show, after Ari Melber.

    Prior to joining MSNBC, Huntsman was a host/producer for HuffPost Live, the Huffington Post's streaming network. She had also been a frequent guest on CNN.

    Jon Huntsman campaign

    Huntsman worked on her father's 2012 campaign as a media advisor and surrogate. On the campaign trail Abby, along with her sisters Liddy and Mary Anne, earned attention for their social media presence. The Huntsman Daughters were profiled by The New Yorker, GQ, and BuzzFeed.

    Personal life

    Huntsman was born in Pennsylvania. She grew up in Utah but has spent many years living in Asia, most recently Beijing. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2008, with a degree in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE). In 2010, she married her college sweetheart, Jeffrey Bruce Livingston.

    She, along with Meghan McCain and Margaret Hoover released an ad in early 2013 in support of gay marriage. "I think it's a generational issue, and I think over time you're going to see more and more Republicans support the freedom to marry. I'm happy and proud of that movement."
