"The attack in San Bernardino is evidence that the threat of terrorism persists across the U.S.," said Ambassador Bolton. "It is imperative that the western United States is represented by Republican leaders who put security first and will vote for strong national defense policies that ensure we identify, combat, and defeat our enemies effectively. I am proud to support the campaigns of these six candidates."
Additionally, the John Bolton PAC will make contributions totaling $35,000. This comes as a part of a larger effort by the John Bolton PAC to ensure America elects officials to Congress who will fight for a strong national defense and put America's interests first in foreign policy.
Ambassador Bolton on Sheriff Scott Jones (CA-7)
"As a sheriff, Scott has the experience and mindset to understand the importance of security," said Ambassador Bolton. "I know Scott will take his security experience from his years serving as sheriff and apply it on the national level to ensure America's military is strong and our borders are secure, which is why I am proud to support his candidacy for Congress."
Ambassador Bolton on Representative Jeff Denham (CA-10)
"With 16 years of service in the U.S. Air Force, Jeff has the experience and knowledge that America needs as we face growing threats to our national security," said Ambassador Bolton. "As a Member of Congress, Jeff voted against the Obama Administration's destructive Iran deal and has worked to strengthen our national defense, which is why I fully endorse his re-election to Congress."
Ambassador Bolton on David Valadao (CA-21)
"In Congress, David has proven that he will strengthen America's national defense by improving our military and intelligence capabilities," said Ambassador Bolton. "I look forward to working with him, along with a new administration, to wipe out ISIS and ensure America is equipped to take on any threat we may face, and I am proud to endorse his re-election to Congress."
Ambassador Bolton on Denise Gitsham (CA-52)
"Running in a district that has a dense military population, Denise understands that national security should be one of the top priorities of our federal government," said Ambassador Bolton. "I know Denise will work to strengthen our national defense by ensuring our military has the tools needed to protect against growing threats abroad, and I endorse her candidacy for Congress."
Ambassador Bolton on Danny Tarkanian (NV-3)
"Danny believes, as I do, that there is no greater responsibility of the federal government than keeping America safe, yet this is where the Obama Administration has failed us most," said Ambassador Bolton. "I endorse Danny for Congress because he supports a strong national defense that will secure our border and take decisive action against terrorism and other threats abroad."
Ambassador Bolton on Representative Cresent Hardy (NV-4)
"As a member of Congress, Cresent has worked to strengthen our national defense and secure our borders," said Ambassador Bolton. "I trust that Cresent will continue to advocate for foreign policy initiatives that will advance America's interests abroad and keep our country safe from the growing threat of terrorism and other bad actors, which is why I wholly endorse his re-election for Congress."
In the 2016 cycle, the John Bolton PAC has contributed $442,000 and endorsed 61 candidates for the U.S. House and Senate, and Ambassador Bolton will continue to endorse candidates in the lead-up to November 8th.
