Paul Ryan's book tour includes 9 Florida stops



Rep. Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney's 2012 running mate and a potential 2016 candidate, will make nine stops in Florida as part of the promo tour for his new book, The Way Forward: Renewing the American Idea.

On Aug. 22, Ryan will begin in Pensacola then hit Destin and Panama City. On Aug. 23 he will be in Tallahassee, Gainesivlle, the Villages and Orlando. On Aug. 24, Ryan visits Tampa and Sarasota. The full tour details were first provided to Politico.

According to Barnes & Noble, "The Way Forward," challenges conventional thinking, outlines his political vision for 2014 and beyond, and shows how essential conservatism is for the future of our nation. Beginning with a careful analysis of the 2012 election--including a look at the challenge the GOP had in reaching a majority of voters and the prevalence of identity politics--Ryan examines the state of the Republican party and dissects its challenges going forward."

Sen. Marco Rubio is writing his second book, on the future of the country and the Republican Party, and it is scheduled for release after the midterm elections.
