Washington D.C. – Former Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, Ambassador John R. Bolton, announced today that he will endorse Gail Huff Brown for the U.S. House of Representatives in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District and the John Bolton PAC will contribute $5,000 to her primary campaign.

“New Hampshire has always been a critical state for the GOP. Voters are acutely aware that national security must remain at the forefront. From protecting our borders to stopping the flow of illegal drugs, to the need for America to be strong and respected throughout the world, I believe Gail Huff Brown is the right person for the job,” said Ambassador Bolton.

“The Biden Administration’s strategic incoherence has put American security, prestige, and credibility on the line. Given Russian threats, Chinese assertiveness, and the growing nuclear menace of Iran and North Korea, now is exactly the right time for national security to remain at the forefront of the public policy debate.”

Gail Huff Brown issued the following statement in response to Ambassador Bolton’s endorsement and contribution to her campaign:

“I am honored to receive Ambassador John Bolton’s endorsement. With a lifetime of service to our country informing his endorsement, Ambassador Bolton knows I am the only candidate in this race with the foreign policy experience needed to secure our nation’s borders, push back on bad actors abroad, and support a true America First agenda.

“It is incumbent upon Congress to protect American interests at home and abroad, something we aren’t seeing under the current administration. I am ready to get to work on day one to protect our freedoms and restore New Hampshire’s voice in Congress.”

Ambassador Bolton plans to significantly increase candidate endorsements and contributions in this election cycle. Founded in 2013, the John Bolton PAC continues to be one of the most active leadership PACs in the country.
