Sen. Rand Paul says he intends in 2015 to pound out a book – and decide whether to take a run for the White House.
"Just coincidence, probably just coincidence, yeah," the Kentucky Republican joked in announcing the book deal to the Louisville Courier-Journal.
Paul wouldn't tell the newspaper what the working title of the book is, but said a possible subtitle was "Beyond Partisanship," adding: "Beyond the left-right paradigm kind of thing."
As for his presidential plans, Paul told the newspaper he'd make up his mind "in the beginning of 2015 sometime or the spring of 2015."
Paul has written two other books: "The Tea Party Goes to Washington"
in 2011, and "Government Bullies: How Everyday Americans Are Being Harassed, Abused, and Imprisoned by the Feds"
But the libertarian-leaning lawmaker ran into trouble last year
over alleged plagiarism in some speeches and writings. He ultimately owned up
and declared he'd add footnotes to all future material.
