Mike Allen and Evan Thomas with the inside scoop on the 2012 presidential campaign
Most of Newt Gingrich’s presidential campaign staff disowned him after he took time off from his political ambitions to cruise the Greek Isles with his wife; Gingrich would later refer to the subsequent fallout as the “two hardest months in my life.” Revealing intimate details of headline stories like Gingrich’s is the purpose of a new series of e-books, called the “Politico Playbook 2012” series, being co-authored by prominent Politico writer Mike Allen and author Evan Thomas. The collection will consist of four digital books about the 2012 presidential election published exclusively in electronic form by Random House Publishing Group. The first installment, titled “The Right Fights Back,” chronicles the Republican Party’s struggle to define itself going into the 2012 election. Allen and Thomas provide in-depth analysis of the key power-players and sometimes-scandalous events that are influencing the race for the White House. What do you think of the scandals and gaffes associated with politicians such as Newt Gingrich, Tim Pawlenty, and Herman Cain? Do these proceedings have any affect at all on the reputation of the Republican Party?
