WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - November 10, 2016) - Ambassador John Bolton released the following statement congratulating President-Elect Donald Trump on his resounding victory to become the 45th president of the United States:
"Congratulations to President-Elect Donald Trump on his hard-fought victory," said Ambassador John Bolton. "As President, I am confident he will steer away from Barack Obama's failed foreign policies and work hard to restore American leadership. I look forward to his work with Republicans in the House and Senate to rebuild our national defense capabilities, eliminate ISIS, secure our borders, and display strength on the world's stage. Under Donald Trump, I am optimistic that we will truly make America great again."
In the 2016 election cycle, Ambassador Bolton raised $12.5 million. He endorsed 94 candidates and the John Bolton PAC contributed nearly $680,000, making it the most active leadership PAC in the country. Additionally, the John Bolton SuperPAC spent a total of nearly $5 million for independent expenditures (IE) in support of Senate candidates in key battleground states. The IEs were used to develop and distribute innovative, digital online and TV ads that were personality-targeted in battleground states, and released in five different personality-tones to reflect the varying demographics.
"I am very proud to have helped maintain Republican majorities in the U.S. House and Senate," said Ambassador Bolton. "With these majorities, President-Elect Trump will be able to effectively pass legislation that will strengthen our national security and grow America's influence around the world."
Ambassador Bolton also played a major role in supporting the Republican Party on a national and statewide level. He traveled the country on behalf of the RNC, GOP state parties, and Republican candidates to raise money and advocate for strong foreign policies. He participated in nearly 40 GOP events and campaigned for congressional candidates in more than 16 states over the course of the last year.
