--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Media Advisory:
Rep. John Delaney (D-MD), the first declared candidate for president in 2020, will participate in an author talk and reception to discuss his new book The Right Answer: How We Can Unify Our Divided Nation, in which he delivers a passionate call for bipartisan action, entrepreneurial innovation, and a renewed commitment to the American idea. The son of a union electrician and grandson of an immigrant, Delaney grew up believing that anything was possible in America. Before he was 50, he founded, built and then sold two companies worth billions of dollars. Driven by a deep desire to serve, in 2012 he stepped away from his businesses, ran for Congress, and won. Now he has a new mission: unifying our divided nation and guiding it to a brighter future.

Delaney’s new book discusses his passion for serving and the journey that shaped his desire to run for office. In the book, he writes candidly about the often frustrating experience of working on Capitol Hill, where many of his colleagues care more about scoring political points than improving the lives of their fellow Americans. As a boy, Delaney learned the importance of working hard, telling the truth and embracing compromise. As an entrepreneur, he succeeded because he understood the need to ensure opportunity for all, focus on the future, and think creatively about problem-solving. During the book talk, he will discuss what motivates him to serve and how his book illustrates the potency of these principles with vivid stories from his childhood, his career in business, his family, and life as a politician.
The author talk is free to attend. Seating is on a first come, first served basis. Media interested in covering the event should contact Shawn Flaherty at 703-554-3609.
