Fundraiser will be held to support Nicholson’s campaign for U.S. Senate

Washington, D.C., Sept. 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ambassador John Bolton announced today that he will host a fundraising event for U.S. Senate Candidate Kevin Nicholson at the Wisconsin Club in Milwaukee on Wednesday, September 6th. Ambassador Bolton’s support follows his endorsement of Nicholson for U.S. Senate and a contribution from the John Bolton PAC of $10,000.  

“It is important for Wisconsin conservatives to elect Kevin Nicholson in Wisconsin’s GOP primary – he is the best chance for Republicans to defeat Tammy Baldwin and he is most qualified to serve Wisconsin in the U.S. Senate,” said Ambassador Bolton. “Through his service as a U.S. Marine in Iraq and Afghanistan, he understands the challenges America faces abroad and will fight for a strong national security that will keep our country safe. That, along with his respected corporate experience, gives him a combination of foreign policy and business acumen, which is needed in the Senate.”

Kevin Nicholson issued the following statement in response to Ambassador Bolton’s endorsement and contribution to his campaign: 

"I'm excited to welcome Ambassador Bolton to Wisconsin and grateful for his support. We both know how important it is to defeat Tammy Baldwin in 2018 and keep our national defense strong. As a Marine combat veteran, I know what it takes to keep America safe and will always support Wisconsin's veterans."

Including Nicholson, Ambassador Bolton has endorsed 11 candidates for U.S. Congress and contributed a collective $110,000 in 2018. For the 2016 elections, 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.
