To say the 2020 election (opens in new tab) has been a long time coming would be an understatement. Aside from a seemingly endless news cycle, an election year typically provides us with some incredible new political books, as proven with this year's brand-new titles, like Stacey Abrams' Our Time Is Now (opens in new tab) and President Barack Obama's highly-anticipated memoir, A Promised Land (opens in new tab). If you're feeling fired up for Election Day or, you know, have just been dying to get your hands on Mary L. Trump's book (opens in new tab), add these 2020 political titles, ahead, to your reading list.
