Guardian Election coverage

I, Senator

Medea Benjamin, who is currently running for Senator in California, has released a book entitled I, Senator. The book is in the same vein as the 1934 I, Governor of California by Upton Sinclair, which reads as a history of the future, detailing what Sinclair wanted to achieve as Governor. Benjamin's book deals with the issues surrounding her campaign, and her run for office in the same way.

It is available here at sfbg.com for free, in web and PDF form. Check the links below to read or download the book, hear audio from Medea's March 3rd speech, and jump to background information.
