Wisconsin Representative and former Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan (R) has signed a book deal scheduled to come out next summer ahead of the mid-term elections.
Ryan, who is a vocal opponent of President Obama on fiscal matters, will title his book on the state of the conservative movement in America, Where Do We Go From Here? according to publisher Twelve.
“It will challenge conventional thinking, renew the conservative vision for 2014 and beyond, and show how it is essential for the well-being of our communities and the future of our nation,” said a release for the book.
The publisher also adds the deal will be submitted to the House Ethics Committee for approval, and Ryan will not receive an advance from the publisher. This is in following House rules.
Twelve explained that Ryan, who is an eight-term representative, will receive royalties for the sale of the book.
Paul Ryan is one of the rising stars of the GOP, and he was not only the VP candidate alongside Mitt Romney in the 2012 Presidential Elections but is the Chairman of the very powerful House Budget Committee.
This is not the first time Ryan has taken pen to paper. He previously co-authored the book Young Guns with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy.
The 43-year-old Wisconsin representative is known for reaching out across the isle in an effort to compromise but is very vocal about his beliefs and has no qualms telling like it is.
He famously challenged President Obama to his face in 2010 at the height of the healthcare pitch to the American people saying, “Hiding spending doesn’t reduce spending.”
Paul Ryan graduated from the Miami University of Ohio and worked as an aide for legislator Jack Kemp among others. He was also a speechwriter before being elected to the House of Representatives for Wisconsin’s First Congressional District, a heavily Democratic district in 1998.
