JANESVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker is writing a book – and apparently, Janesville House Republican Paul Ryan is doing the same.
The National Review says Ryan wants to highlight a number of personal topics and policy ideas, as both he and Walker are speculated to be gearing up for Republican White House candidacies in 2016.
Walker’s book will be called “Unintimidated,” and it’s due out later this year.
The Ryan book reportedly has neither a title nor a possible release date. The National Review says it will touch on Ryan’s recent contention that the GOP needs to show those in poverty how to achieve economic freedom.
The report also says Ryan will describe his childhood in Janesville, his work as an aide to former Congressman Jack Kemp, and his rise in Congress.
He also plans to write about his experience as the GOP’s vice presidential nominee in 2012. But don’t expect a lot of dirt about that.
The National Review says Ryan has told friends that he’ll only praise Mitt Romney – and he won’t be writing a tell-all memoir.
He’s said to be working with attorney Bob Barnett on the project – but so far at least, Ryan’s been writing by himself.
