Rachel Campos-Duffy may have gotten her start as one of the stars of the iconic show, MTVs The Real World: San Francisco, but today she is ranked one of “Newsmax’s 50 Most Influential Latino” leaders and sought after for her honest, insightful, and often humorous real-world view of the news cycle and American public policy.
Rachel is a published author, communications consultant, and television personality. She is a Fox News and Fox Business contributor and a recurring guest host on hit shows, Fox & Friends and Outnumbered, offering her unique view on public policy, parenting, and everything in between.
Rachel has also appeared as a frequent guest on NBC’s Today Show and ABC’s The View. In 2008, she co-hosted the series Speaking of Women’s Health on the Lifetime Network with the legendary Florence Henderson.
Her advocacy work has included serving as the national spokesperson for The LIBRE Initiative, a non-profit group that advocates for the economic empowerment of Hispanics through limited government, entrepreneurship and self-reliance.
Rachel’s debut children’s book, Paloma Wants to Be Lady Freedom (Regnery Kids, 2018), is a story about a little girl’s adventure inside the U.S. Capitol inspired by real life events where she learns about patriotism, courage, and her immigrant father’s journey to citizenship.
She has a bachelor’s degree in economics from Arizona State University’s Honors Program and a master’s degree in international affairs from the University of California, San Diego.
Rachel lives in Wisconsin with her husband, Congressman Sean Duffy, and her eight awesome kids.
