WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - September 06, 2016) - Ambassador John Bolton's SuperPAC announced a $1 million independent expenditure (IE) campaign in support of Senator Richard Burr's re-election to the U.S. Senate against an opponent weak on counter-terrorism. The IE will target voters in North Carolina through personality-driven ads on Google, Facebook, Twitter, Pandora, DISH Network, and DIRECTV. The SuperPAC campaign will run through election day.
"During his time in the U.S. Senate, Richard has been an exceptional leader, who has proven his commitment to keeping America safe through strong national defense policies," said Ambassador Bolton. "As chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and as a member of the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, Richard has fought against the Obama administration's misguided Iran Deal, and he wants to work with our allies to stop the spread of terrorism, curb Russian aggression, and strengthen America's cyber security."
"This is the wrong time to trade an expert on terrorism for an amateur, which is why we need Richard to continue his great work in the Senate," said Ambassador Bolton. "Senator Burr has earned the support of Republicans, Democrats, and independents alike."
This announcement comes as part of a larger effort by Ambassador Bolton to ensure Republicans maintain their majorities in the U.S. House and Senate. In addition to Senator Burr, Ambassador Bolton's SuperPAC is running two independent expenditure campaigns for Dr. Joe Heck (NV) and Senator Kelly Ayotte (NH) each totaling approximately $1M. Dr. Joe Heck (NV) and Senator Kelly Ayotte (NH). Through the John Bolton PAC, the Ambassador has made campaign contributions of more than $440,000 and endorsed 61 candidates running for election in the 2016 cycle. In 2014 the PAC was a major contributor in the midterm elections with 87 endorsements and PAC contributions.
