Kasich gets a deal; book due out in April


Kasich gets a deal; book due out in April

NEW YORK

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a prominent Republican detractor of President Donald Trump’s, has a book deal.

Thomas Dunne Books said Kasich’s “Two Paths: America Divided or United” will be published April 25. The book will reflect on Kasich’s career, his run for the presidency and his views on a wide range of issues, from media coverage of politics to voting rights.

The 64-year-old Kasich was a leading competitor to Trump in the GOP primary race and declined to endorse Trump after he clinched the nomination. The two have continued to feud, with Kasich calling Trump’s recent immigration executive order “ham-handed,” and Trump supporting a contender for state party chair in Ohio who defeated a Kasich backer for the job.

NEW YORK

The Navy SEAL who has said he fired the shots that killed Osama bin Laden has a memoir coming out this spring.

Scribner told The Associated Press that Robert O’Neill’s “The Operator” will be published April 25. According to Scribner, O’Neill’s book will “vividly recount” a career that included some 400 missions, notably the May 2011 raid on bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan. O’Neill also was on the missions that helped rescue Capt. Richard Phillips from Somali pirates and SEAL Marcus Luttrell from Afghanistan.

In a statement issued through Scribner, O’Neill said he wanted to show “the human side” of the battles fought for the country worldwide.
