Following attacks on her during the last Republican presidential debate, Hillary Clinton sent a copy of her book, “Hard Choices,” to all of the Republican presidential candidates except former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore.

“I’m trying to be a good fellow candidate and give them some help,” Clinton said on Tuesday at a rally in Iowa about her decision to send the book to her rivals, according to Politico.

She mailed each candidate a book along with a note encouraging them to read up on her time as secretary of state.

A few Republican candidates were quick to respond to Clinton, offering reading suggestions for the former secretary of state.

Kristy Campbell, a spokeswoman for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, told the Washington Post that Bush “hopes Secretary Clinton will have an opportunity to read his e-book, ‘Reply All,’ when it comes out in a few weeks. The book, based on Governor Bush’s emails while in office, is a good lesson on the importance of transparency in government.”
