During the live show, Huntsman made the announcement: "This is always such a hard thing to do. And especially this table because this is a really special table. The most iconic show on television and the smartest women I have ever worked with. But today I am saying goodbye. This is something I thought a lot about."
"As you guys know my number one priority is my family," she went on to explain. "There's no one I believe in more than my own dad right now to run for politics."
Huntsman became a co-host of "The View" in 2018 as a conservative voice. The departure comes amid various reports of behind-the-scenes conflict among the co-hosts and fellow conservative Meghan McCain.
