NEW YORK (AP) — Mark Halperin’s planned book about the 2020 election has been officially announced amid protests that the “Game Change” co-author hasn’t earned a second chance since facing multiple allegations of sexual harassment.

Regan Arts announced Monday that “How to Beat Trump” will come out in November. It draws upon the input of dozens of Democratic party strategists, among them Donna Brazile and David Axelrod. Reports Sunday of the book’s publication were met with numerous denunciations, with former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson calling the news “a slap in the face to all women.”

Regan Arts founder Judith Regan said in a statement that she did not “in any way, shape, or form condone” Halperin’s behavior, but that she believed in “a path to redemption.”

Halperin apologized when the allegations first surfaced in 2017 but also said some accounts were not true.
