Washington, D.C., June 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WASHINGTON, D.C. – Ambassador John Bolton announced today his endorsement of Representative Mike Coffman in his bid for Congress in Colorado’s 6th Congressional District. In addition, the John Bolton PAC will contribute a total of $10,000 to his 2018 campaign. This announcement comes as part of a larger contribution of $100,000, which will be distributed among ten Congressional candidates whom the Ambassador has identified as champions of a strong national security and foreign policy.
“Mike Coffman understands the importance of a strong national defense and he also fundamentally understands that Israel is our strongest ally in the Middle East,” said Ambassador John Bolton. “I support his re-election for Congress because I believe he will continue to advocate for a strong military to deter those wishing to do harm to America and our allies.”
Mike Coffman issued the following statement in response to Ambassador Bolton’s contribution to his campaign:
"Our national security depends on having a strong and robust national security defense policy. I want to thank Amb. Bolton for his contributions in pushing the conversation forward. John's unique perspective is always welcomed and appreciated."
In the 2016 election cycle, the John Bolton PAC contributed a total of $680,000 and endorsed 94 candidates, making it the most active leadership PAC in the country, and earning the PAC numerous industry awards. This is the earliest the John Bolton PAC has involved itself in an election cycle, signaling Ambassador Bolton’s plans to significantly increase contributions for the 2018 elections.
In addition to his leadership PAC, Ambassador Bolton heads the John Bolton SuperPAC, which spent nearly $5M on independent expenditures for three U.S. Senate races in 2016.
