Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

TDB.jpgCalifornia Republican Party Chairman Tom Del Beccaro is penning a second book.

The top state GOP official says he's about one-third of the way done writing the manuscript, tentatively titled "Selling Freedom in America."

Del Beccaro described the work-in-progress as a road map for revving up interest in GOP-backed ideas and making sure those ideas are implemented.

"A lot of people sit around and say here's 20 things we should do, but if it was just having the ideas. ... It's how to create the environment where people believe that is the right thing to do," he said.

Del Beccaro has yet to secure a publisher or set a release date, but the GOP leader said he's also getting ready to roll out a second edition of his first book, "The New Conservative Paradigm."

He said the tweaks he's made to what was billed as a "playbook that will deliver electoral success well into the 21st Century" make it a "much better book."

The first edition, released ahead of the 2008 election, is currently available only on e-readers. Used copies of the hardcover version start at $4.94 on
