Ambassador John Bolton Endorses & Contributes to Roy Blunt & Chuck Grassley for U.S. Senate

The John Bolton PAC Has Contributed to 41 Candidates So Far in the 2016 Cycle

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - May 24, 2016) - Ambassador John Bolton announced today his endorsement of two candidates for U.S. Senate: Roy Blunt (R-MO) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA). Along with Ambassador Bolton's endorsement, the John Bolton PAC will contribute $10,000 to each Senator's re-election campaign as part of a larger effort by Ambassador Bolton to ensure Republicans maintain their majority in the U.S. Senate.

"I am excited to endorse and support two standout candidates for re-election who understand the most demanding issues America is facing at home and overseas," Ambassador Bolton said. "Both senators have a proven track record for leading on issues and voting for legislation that promotes and protects America's global interests."

Statements from Amb. Bolton on the candidates:

On Senator Roy Blunt: "Senator Blunt believes, as I do, that the world is most peaceful when America is strong. He fundamentally understands that the federal government's primary role is to protect our nation from threats, both foreign and domestic. I endorse Senator Blunt because he has done great work in the Senate to enhance and expand America's military capabilities, which is what we need as new threats to our nation evolve."

On Senator Chuck Grassley: "Senator Grassley was named the hardest working senator in America and it shows, especially on matters of national security. Senator Grassley has an impressive track record that proves he is committed to securing America's safety at home through a strong national defense and enhanced intelligence capabilities, which is why I fully endorse his campaign for re-election."

Responses from each candidate on the endorsement:

Senator Roy Blunt: "In an environment where our friends don't trust us and our enemies don't fear us, preserving the Republican majority in the U.S. Senate is critical. Ambassador Bolton's track record on national security is respected around the world, and I am grateful for his friendship and support."

Senator Chuck Grassley: "Ambassador Bolton is a well respected voice on issues of national security, foreign policy, and for America maintaining a position of leadership in the world. I appreciate his support, and look forward to working together to safeguard our country."

In the 2016 cycle, the John Bolton PAC has contributed $317,000 and endorsed 41 candidates for the U.S. House and Senate, and Ambassador Bolton will continue to endorse candidates in the months ahead.
