Washington D.C. – Former Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, Ambassador John R. Bolton, announced today that he will once again endorse Senator Ron Johnson for the U.S. Senate and the John Bolton PAC will contribute $5,000 to his primary campaign.

“We live in dangerous times. America needs strong leaders who are committed to fighting for U.S. interests abroad while keeping Americans safe at home. I believe Ron Johnson is prepared to do just that,” 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 voters to take a serious interest in national security.”

Senator Ron Johnson issued the following statement in response to Ambassador Bolton’s endorsement and contribution to his campaign:

“The Biden administration’s embarrassing and dangerous withdrawal from Afghanistan has weakened America and tempted adversaries like Russia, China, Iran and North Korea to become more aggressive. It is not surprising that Russia chose to invade Ukraine with Biden in power. John Bolton and I both agree with Ronald Reagan’s dictum that America achieves peace through strength, and I appreciate his support.”

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.
