According to her newly filed Senate financial disclosure forms, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) received a $200,000 advance for her latest book, This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America’s Middle Class.
According to the Boston Globe, Warren’s disclosure does not detail how much in royalties she will receive on the book, which is her eleventh, published by the New York-based Henry Holt and Co. However, her returns reportedly noted that her “advance and royalties [are] based on customary and usual terms.”
Warren reportedly received an excess of $500,000 for her last book, A Fighting Chance, published by the same company.
Ironically, Warren — who has claimed to fight against big business — was also paid more than $200,000 in over three years while working “on behalf of big business.” She was paid by Travelers, the nation’s largest insurer.
According to Warren’s latest financial disclosure, she has a net worth of at least $2.5 million. And when her net worth is combined with the worth of her husband, Bruce Mann, the couple is reportedly worth more than $4.74 million.
Warren’s latest book was seen as the Massachusetts senator’s attempt to position herself as a candidate for a 2020 presidential election. However, during an interview with Bloomberg this month, she said, “I’m not running for president.”
“It’s a very thoughtful question, but I actually have to put this in a temporal place,” Warren said. “I’m not running for president. I’m running for my election for Senate in 2018, and I announced very early because I want people to know I am all in.”
