"I just want to tell you this Megan, I don’t agree with your politics, but I love ❤️ the way you carry yourself. I can listen to your views because you are reasonable even when you’re passionate. When everyone is talking over each other I get annoyed if they don’t give you the opportunity to share your thoughts. Remember that is coming from a Democratic."

According to PEOPLE, Meghan hopes to continue to uphold the McCain legacy with her latest book collaboration with Audible. Sharing details of her book she says:

“Everyone has either completely abandoned every conservative ideal they’ve had and gone full never-Trump, or gone full psycho-Trump-MAGA, there’s got to be something for the rest of us and I hope this book is it.”

The outspoken conservative hopes to give readers a better perspective on true conservatives and more specifically, looking at the empowered female conservative.

The release date for the book has not been announced yet, but it is expected to be out by 2020.
