Ted Cruz Has Reportedly Landed A Richer Book Deal Than Palin

Ted Cruz is about to get Sarah Palin money for his book deal.

In fact, the Washington Examiner reports that Cruz’s deal with HarperCollins to write a “personal memoir about his controversial days in Washington and his vision for the future” will be worth even more than the $1.25 million advance awarded to Palin for her 2009 book “Going Rogue.”

Cruz’s $1.5 million advance not only exceeds Palin’s haul, but it dwarfs the six-figure book deals given to 2016 contenders like Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.
