Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) is joining forces with George W. Bush's former chief speechwriter to write a book about his time as governor, including his high-profile clash with organized labor that culminated in a 2012 recall election.

Together with Marc Thiessen, who was Bush's head speechwriter from 2004-2009, Walker will write "Unintimidated: A Governor’s Story and a Nation’s Challenge." According to its publisher, the book will recount the budget reforms Walker enacted in 2011, which included a move to curb collective bargaining for public employees in Wisconsin, a decision that spurred widespread protests and an effort to recall the Republican from office. In the book, Walker will reflect on lessons he learned during the process.
