The insurrection continues. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont senator who dropped out of the Democratic presidential race this week after his unexpectedly  strong challenge against Hillary Clinton, is writing a book about his experiences in the 2016 campaign.

“Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In,” will be published on Nov. 15, a week after the presidential election, Thomas Dunne Books said in a statement on Thursday. The publisher did not mention the size of the advance to be paid to the self-described socialist.

During the campaign, Sanders stirred voters with his progressive policy ideas and challenged Clinton to move to the left on some issues during the Democratic presidential primary. On Tuesday, Sanders endorsed Clinton as the Democratic Party’s presumptive nominee.

The book, according to Thomas Dunne, is set to “share experiences from the campaign trail and outlines his ideas for continuing a political revolution to fight for a progressive economic, environmental, racial and social justice agenda that creates jobs, raises wages, protects the environment and provides healthcare for all.”

Sanders made no immediate comment on the deal.

Mr. Kushkush. Bernie Sanders did NOT drop out of the presidential race. He did NOT concede. He did NOT suspend his campaign. He did NOT release his delegates to Clinton. He is going into the convention in Philadelphia as an active candidate. He ENDORSED Clinton in the event she secures the nomination AT THE CONVENTION, which he concedes is likely. Please correct your story.
