WASHINGTON, D.C., Dec. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ambassador John Bolton announced today that he will endorse Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley for U.S. Senate. Hawley is vying to become the Republican candidate to unseat incumbent Claire McCaskill. In addition to the endorsement, the John Bolton PAC will make a $10,000 contribution to Hawley’s campaign.

“Josh Hawley is a constitutional lawyer who has fought for cases at the Supreme Court and won,” said Ambassador Bolton. “He’ll take that same fight to the U.S. Senate, where I know he will vote and advocate for a stronger national security and an America-first foreign policy. His experience as Missouri’s Attorney General is needed in Washington, where he will serve the people of Missouri and our country well. I am proud to endorse his bid for the U.S. Senate.”

Statement from AG Josh Hawley:

“It is an honor to receive an endorsement from Ambassador Bolton. An expert in foreign policy, he understands the many threats posed to America by radical Islam, North Korea, and Iran—threats that too many in Washington have idly let metastasize for more than a decade. American greatness begins with security and stability, and I am grateful for the Ambassador’s support.”

With this announcement, Ambassador Bolton has endorsed 21 candidates for U.S. Congress and his PAC has contributed a collective $205,000 to candidates for the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, which is the most contributed by a leadership PAC in 2017. 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.
