Rep. Ryan reaches book deal, fuels presidential speculation

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Paul Ryan of Janesville will join previous speculated presidential hopefuls in writing a book. Twelve, a subsidiary of Grand Central Publishing, said last night that Ryan's book will be called "Where Do We Go From Here?" It's scheduled to hit the stores next August.

The publisher says Ryan will challenge conventional thinking as he describes the state of conservatism, contrasts it with liberal ideas, and then explains what should be done to quote, "save the American idea."

Ryan was the 2012 Republican vice-presidential nominee, and he chairs the House Budget Committee. On Friday, speculation about a White House run increased when Ryan said he would visit New Hampshire next month to help a former House colleague -- Frank Guinta -- start a bid to win his old job back.

Ryan is the top choice of Wisconsin G-O-P primary voters at this point. He got 27-percent in a survey from Public Policy Polling last week. Governor Scott Walker was a distant second with 14-percent. Walker's also putting out a book called "Un-intimidated." Its cover was recently unveiled.
