There’s some new support for Scott Brown in his quest for the U.S. Senate seat in New Hampshire. Citing the candidate’s “national security credentials”, John Bolton has stepped forward to endorse Mr. Brown, and also contribute a tidy $10,000 to his primary and general election campaign. He’s waging a vigorous fight against Democrat Senator Jeanne Shaheen.

Mr. Bolton says she has faithfully supported the Obama administration’s “failed foreign and defense policies”

Mr. Brown has a different perspective.

“Formerly a colonel in the Army National Guard with a distinguished record, Scott Brown knows how to lead and he believes in an America that is respected at home and abroad,” Mr. Bolton explains. “He is the type of public servant who isn’t afraid to be independent and make bold decisions for the state of New Hampshire.”

Mr. Brown is also appreciative.

“As a former ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton is a leading voice on the threats facing our nation’s security,” he says. “Granite Staters are fed up with the failed policies of the Obama-Shaheen agenda that has led to the immigration crisis at the southern border, a weak economy and indecisive foreign policy. I’m running for Senate to make America strong and restore our nation’s greatness.”

This is Mr. Bolton’s 12th endorsement and candidate contribution. The John Bolton Super PAC, incidentally, has raised $4 million from grassroots voters interested in “national security” candidates who have insight into global threats, can-do style leadership and a commitment to a “strong” America.

Among GOP hopefuls who have gotten the Bolton bolster: Thom Tillis in North Carolina, Ed Gillespie in Virginia, Joni Ernst in Iowa and Mike Pompeo in Kansas.
