The announcement Wednesday of Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) new book, set to be published exactly one week after the 2018 midterm elections, has spurred speculation that he could make another run for president in 2020.
In Where We Go From Here, the senator’s forthcoming book, “America’s most popular political figure speaks about what he’s been doing to oppose the Trump agenda and strengthen the progressive movement, and how we go forward as a nation,” according to a statement (pdf) released by the publisher, St. Martin’s Press. It will be available Nov. 13, 2018.
This will be Sanders’s third book in as many years. In 2016, he published Our Revolution: A Future To Believe In. Last year, he put out Bernie Sanders Guide to Political Revolution, in which he shared “ideas for continuing a political revolution to fight for a progressive economic, environmental, racial and social justice agenda that creates jobs, raises wages, protects the environment and provides healthcare for all.”
“Aspiring presidential candidates in previous cycles have routinely published books laying out their policy visions and personal stories,” CNN noted. “Barack Obama’s best-seller The Audacity of Hope—which came out in the fall of 2006—was a foundational piece of his 2008 presidential campaign. Other recent examples of the genre: Mitt Romney’s No Apology—published in spring 2010—and Hillary Clinton’s Hard Choices, published in summer 2014.”
