WASHINGTON, Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ambassador John Bolton endorses three GOP candidates for the U.S. House. In addition to the strong endorsement, Hill, Pompeo, and Westerman are receiving the maximum PAC contribution; making it a total of 20 endorsements and candidate donations from the John Bolton PAC.
"These next 2 1/2 months will decide the midterm elections and I'm doing everything I can to ensure the GOP keeps the House," said Bolton. "I'm confident this will be a change election and a referendum on, amongst other items, Obama's disastrous national security policy."
Bolton is committed to supporting candidates for elected office who believe in protecting the United States' vital freedoms at home by securing American interests in a challenging world. The John Bolton PAC and the John Bolton Super PAC have raised a combined $4.5 million to date with over $3 million cash on hand.
Further statements from Bolton on each candidate endorsement:
-- Rep. French Hill (AR-2): "French and I just spoke and he reiterated to me the importance of a strong national security policy. Furthermore, as a Little Rock resident, French understands his community and constituents. A business leader with a successful record and a proven Congressman, there is no doubt French is the right candidate to lead the second district." -- Bruce Westerman (AR-4): "Bruce is a lifelong resident of Garland County and a leader in the community. From playing for the University of Arkansas Razorbacks football team to serving as the House Majority Leader in the AR State Legislature, he is a proven conservative who will bring much needed leadership and accountability to Washington. Importantly, he also recognizes the need for America to recalibrate its foreign policy." -- Rep. Mike Pompeo (KS-4): "A graduate of the U.S. Military Academy and a retired Army officer, Mike knows what it takes to lead. He is an outspoken advocate for reducing the size of government, and as a member of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, he understands the importance of national security and the Obama Administration's failed foreign policy."
