U.S. Rep. Ryan Zinke, R-Mont., has partnered with “American Sniper” author Scott McEwen on a book that will arrive in bookstores in September, 49 days before the general election.

“American Commander: Serving a Country Worth Fighting For and Training the Brave Soldiers Who Lead the Way,” is a book Zinke said he’s been planning with McEwen for some time.

The two met through Chris Kyle, whose book “American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History,” was a best-selling collaboration with McEwen. The book later became a major motion picture that ended with Kyle’s tragic shooting death by a troubled veteran.
