Betsy Woodruff covers a range of topics from campaigns in Capitol Hills to common political issues. Additionally, she has appeared in other shows on other networks such as MSNBC and Fox Business.
Betsy hails from a loving and very supportive family led by Scott Woodruff to whom she credits her work ethic. His mother is Jane Tharp Woodruff, a University of Missouri marketing graduate and former bookstore assistant at the Patrick Henry College Bookstore, who is now a homemaker. The former Woodruff got married on July 9, 1983. While her daughter is very interested in politics and the political business and has even forged a successful career on this pedestal, Jane has no interest in politics.

Chris Woodruff works for Life Raft International as Executive Director in Bangkok, where he lives with his family, while Jane Woodruff works for Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig and lives in Leesburg, Virginia. Despite the geographical locations and hectic work schedules that seem to keep the family members apart, they still maintain a strong bond which they easily flaunt on social media platforms.
Woodruff seems to be a popular surname as many other personalities identify, including American television journalist Bob Woodruff.
