Tim Murtaugh, the man who spearheaded communications for the 2020 Trump campaign, is stepping into the literary world with his forthcoming book, 'Swing Hard in Case You Hit It.' More than just a chronicle of his political journey, the book unfolds Murtaugh's personal story of redemption, recounting his battle with alcoholism and his leap to professional success while working on the Trump campaign.
A Personal Journey to Redemption
The book, which is available for pre-order and slated for release in April, is not just a political memoir. It is a candid exploration of Murtaugh's life journey, marked by poor choices and consequences that nearly shattered his career and personal life. 'Swing Hard in Case You Hit It' details Murtaugh's experiences with jail time due to alcohol-related offenses, his path to recovery, and his professional ascent, culminating in his role in the Trump 2020 campaign.
Inside the Trump Campaign and Beyond
Murtaugh takes readers on an eye-opening journey through the Trump campaign, sharing anecdotes from the rallies, the COVID-19 pandemic, Election Day 2020, and events beyond, including January 6, 2021. Despite the turbulence, Murtaugh emphasizes his pride in working for President Trump, terming the role as the highest honor of his professional career.
The Message of Hope and Recovery
Murtaugh, whose legacy also includes being the grandson of Danny Murtaugh, a two-time World Series-winning manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates, hopes that his book will serve as a guiding light for others on their path to sobriety. He points out that while he has critiqued Hunter Biden's foreign business dealings, he never aimed at Biden's struggle with addiction, understanding firsthand the grip a substance can have over a person.
Published by Bombardier Books, an imprint of Post Hill Press, 'Swing Hard in Case You Hit It' offers a unique intersection of personal struggle, political insight, and a message of hope and recovery for those grappling with addiction. Through sharing his story on his own terms, Murtaugh seeks to diminish the power of his past dark times, thereby offering a beacon of hope to individuals wrestling with similar issues.
