Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker to Publish Book This Fall

March 26, 2013 Updated Mar 26, 2013 at 11:47 AM CDT

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has a book coming out later this year.

According to a news release issued Tuesday:

The Sentinel imprint of Penguin Group has acquired world rights to a book by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, to be called Unintimidated: A Governor’s Story and a Nation’s Challenge.

Walker became the focus of a nationwide controversy in 2011 when he proposed a series of budget reforms that eliminated Wisconsin’s $3.6 billion deficit through limiting the collective bargaining power of public employee unions, which was costing taxpayers billions in pension and health care costs across all levels of government. Liberals all over America swiftly denounced Governor Walker, with nearly 100,000 protesters overtaking the state Capitol in Madison. 

In Unintimidated, Walker will share the inside story of how the battle for Wisconsin was won -- the reforms he enacted, the mistakes he made and the lessons he learned.

Unintimidated is tentatively scheduled to be released in late 2013. Marc Thiessen, former chief speechwriter for President George W. Bush, is working with Walker as a co-writer.
