Ted Cruz to write book

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is working on a book to be published by HarperCollins. 

The book will focus partly on his personal story and partly on policy, according to reports. There is no scheduled release date or a working title.

The Washington Examiner reported the deal was worth close to $1.5 million. 

Cruz, who was elected in 2012, is seen as a potential candidate for president in 2016. Writing a book is a step many candidates take on their road to a run. Cruz has also been visiting a number of early presidential nominating states. 

On Wednesday, he spoke at Liberty University, which calls itself the largest Christian university in the country. A number of prospective GOP presidential candidates in the past have also given speeches there.
