"In recent years, and especially in the election of 2008, Keli Goff brought skill and grace to the rough-and-tumble arena of political commentary. Now, in time for 2012, she has aimed those same talents at fiction, and the result is a witty novel that reminds us that all politics is personal." - Arianna Huffington, President and Editor-in-Chief of The Huffington Post Media Group.
"Goff's intellectually pulsating and fresh political page-turner is penned with undeniable heat and heart-racing soul...each character's inside portrait, vividly threaded making you invest deeper. If you love government affairs laced with swaggering scandal and an intense competitive race to the finish line, The GQ Candidate is a must-read." - Victoria Rowell
