Ali's first book, "Electable: Why America Hasn't Put a Woman in the White House. . .Yet," was published in August 2022. It dives into the 2020 American presidential campaign and the experience of presidential women hopefuls.

Since Ali spent 600 days on the campaign trail, she had all the information required to write the book. She highlights why no woman has become the president of America even after several highly qualified women try.

Ali explains that women are vying for political seats, and those in the media industry face double-standard policies.

In the book, Ali also explains what it will take for a woman to win the election in America. She hopes that America will have more female presidential candidates from both Parties and a fairer playing field than the previous ones.


Ali has been dating Jeremy Diamond since 2016, but they have never been married. They met while covering a Trump rally in Iowa.

Jeremy is a CNN White House Correspondent and a political reporter. Currently, he covers the Joe Biden Administration. Ali's first impression of Jeremy was that he was "cute."

Jeremy first considered Ali - a formidable competitor in covering Trump's presidential campaign. But they became a couple after dating a few times and driving across rallies together.
