Ambassador John Bolton Calls for Arizona Republicans to Choose McCain in GOP Primary

Ambassador Bolton Says McCain has the Experience Needed in an Increasingly Dangerous World

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - July 21, 2016) - Ambassador John Bolton released the following statement in support of Senator John McCain's re-election campaign for U.S. Senate in Arizona, and in response to false attacks by Senator McCain's GOP Primary opponent. Arizona's Primary takes place on Tuesday, August 30, 2016.

Ambassador Bolton on his support for Senator McCain:

"The world today is an extremely dangerous place," said Ambassador Bolton. "Terrorists are targeting Americans at home and abroad, creating fear and uncertainty among our citizenry. We need leadership and the steady hand of experience to keep Americans safe, which is why I'm supporting John McCain for the US Senate."

Ambassador Bolton on false attacks by Senator McCain's primary opponent:

"Recently, Kelli Ward, one of Sen. McCain's primary opponents blamed him for the rise of ISIS, simultaneously saying we need "restraint" in our fight against terrorism. Terrorism will not stop until we put an end to the groups that are responsible for the senseless attacks. John McCain understands that we need an aggressive approach to ending terrorism and that we must fight ISIS abroad -- not wait until they attack our homeland," said Ambassador Bolton.

"The only restraint that should be exercised is among Arizona voters if they are considering supporting a candidate like Ms. Ward. She has spent more time addressing conspiracy theories than studying foreign policy. This is more than enough reason to reject her candidacy. She has clearly divorced herself from reality, and cannot be trusted to lead."

Ambassador Bolton concluded:

"John McCain is a critical leader for Arizona and our country. He is the man I trust to fight for our freedom, veterans, and military. Join me in supporting John McCain."
