MR. BOLTON STANDS FAST
Former U.S. U.N. Ambassador John Bolton continues his unwavering support for what he calls “national security” candidates — conservative Republican military veterans running for federal office who favor a strong global U.S. posture. The John Bolton PAC has contributed $342,000 and endorsed 47 of these candidates so far this year, with five more just added to the roster. All are running for election or re-election to the House of Representatives, and all are combat veterans: Reps. Steve Knight of California and Ryan Zinke of Montana; Indiana State Sen. Jim Banks, plus candidates Don Bacon of Nebraska and Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin. Each also received $5,000 for their campaigns.
“It is an effort to ensure America elects officials who will vote for a strong national defense. These candidates are uniquely qualified to deal with international issues in a world that is growing increasingly dangerous for America. It is imperative that we elect them to Congress,” says Mr. Bolton.
“We share a vision of American leadership that is driven by the principle of peace through strength, and taking care of our troops,” noted Mr. Zinke, who served as a U.S. Navy SEAL from 1986 to 2008 and whose campaign motto is, “Nobody leads like a SEAL.”
