In an interview with Louisville’s The Courier-Journal, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul revealed that he is working on a new book set for release in early 2015. While Senator Paul did not reveal the working title, he mentioned that a possible subtitle was “Beyond Partisanship.”
Paul says his book will be “about policy and about my approach to a variety of issues, and maybe the uniqueness of that approach.” The book is intended for those not entirely aligned with either the Republican Party or the Democratic Party, according to Paul, who elaborated upon his bipartisan appeal:
“I’ve sided with some of the most liberal members of the Senate on criminal justice reform and NSA (National Security Agency) and surveillance reform and the right to privacy. And I’ve sided with some of the most conservative members of the Senate on areas of regulation and fiscal responsibility and taxation.”
Paul also told The Courier-Journal that he would make a decision regarding a potential 2016 presidential bid “in the beginning of 2015 sometime or the spring of 2015″ — around the same time as the book release, as is customary for presidential contenders.
“Just coincidence, probably just coincidence, yeah,” Paul said of the proximity of the release date to his campaign decision.
This is Paul’s third book, following “The Tea Party Goes to Washington” and “Government Bullies: How Everyday Americans are Being Harassed, Abused, and Imprisoned by the Feds.”
