Newly elected Senator Rand Paul has scored a book deal with Hachette Book Group’s Center Street division. The publisher will crash The Tea Party Goes to Washington for February, timed to coincide with the Tea Party candidate’s first term in office.
Here’s more about the book: “Paul presents his plan—and the Tea Party’s platform—to bring the U.S. government more in line with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, to stop spending money the country doesn’t have, to stop borrowing, to balance the budget and reduce the size of the government. Facing a $13 trillion national debt, bankrupt entitlement programs and in the midst of two long and expensive wars, the federal government has been bailing out private industry to the tune of billions of dollars, trying to stimulate the economy with billions more, and implementing an estimated $1 trillion national healthcare program.”
Paul (pictured, via) is the son of Republican congressman Ron Paul. He keeps a Twitter page as well. Center Street has published everybody from leadership expert John Maxwell to television personality Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
