Hillary Clinton sent a copy of her book "Hard Choices" last week to each of the Republican presidential candidates, the Democratic frontrunner said Tuesday.

Clinton joked about the gag during a campaign appearance.
"I have now sent each of them a copy of my book, 'Hard Choices,'" she said, according to CNN. "There are so many of them, they could start a book club."
The idea for the joke was born from Clinton and her aides while the team campaigned in the Northeast, a spokesperson told CNN.
After announcing what she had done, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal both responded on Twitter.
Cruz said he'd "gladly return the favor" and send Clinton a copy of his book.
We’ll gladly return the favor and send @HillaryClinton’s campaign #ATimeForTruth because, well... https://t.co/mAFpyZ2SOK— Ted Cruz (@Ted Cruz) 1444171289.0
Jindal said he'd make a deal with the former secretary of state and read her book if she promised to watch the undercover Planned Parenthood sting videos.
I'll make a deal with you @HillaryClinton, if you watch these videos http://t.co/TBLx9EOy8N, I'll read your book. -Bobby— Gov. Bobby Jindal (@Gov. Bobby Jindal) 1444171402.0
No word on if the Democratic contender has taken the two Republicans up on their offers.
