Former UN Ambassador Picks Perdue for Senate, Says Nation Needs Well-Informed Decision Makers

John Bolton, who served as United States Ambassador to the United Nations during the George W. Bush administration, endorsed David Perdue for U.S. Senate this week.

Perdue is facing off against Mary Michelle Martin for the seat being vacated by retiring Senator Saxby Chambliss (R - Georgia).

"The United States has a responsibility to maintain an active and competitive global footprint on the stage of world affairs," Ambassador Bolton said. "To achieve this objective we need leaders that are unapologetic and committed to exercising every lever of American statecraft to ensure our nation's primacy in shaping and responding to the needs of our allies, and challenges of our enemies.

"The American people need well informed decision makers in Congress who will work tirelessly to defend our core strategic interests abroad," Bolton continued.

Since leaving the Bush Administration, Ambassador Bolton formed the John Bolton PAC to raise the importance of American national security in federal elections. The PAC supports and contributes to candidates who are committed to restoring strong American economic and national security policies that secure America's interests in a challenging world.

To date, the John Bolton PAC has contributed $465,000 to candidates running for elected office in the 2014 midterm elections, including a $5,000 check to Rick Allen, who is challenging Georgia Congressman John Barrow for the 12th district post.
