Candidates’ Wives Become Friends
ABC News reports that Anita Perry, Mary Kaye Huntsman, and Callista Gingrich are all friends with one another. Perry and Huntsman even exchange e-mails:
While they see each other at debates and other major political events, the two keep in contact with each other via email, sending each other quick missives several times a week.
“Just a quick, ‘How you doing?’ ‘Where are you today?’ ‘Keep your head up high.’ It’s more on things that we do, too,” Huntsman said. “I’ll send her a picture of the kids doing something, a lot of things about what our kids are doing because that is where you have to stay most centered and realize it puts the right perspective on some of these things that are happening around you.”
Perry and Huntsman’s conversations stick strictly to friendly topics, checking in on when they’ll see each other again and how their families are handling the campaign.
