John Bolton Backs Ron DeSantis for Senate
Former Amb. John Bolton, who is looking at running for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 and was President George W. Bushs ambassador to the United Nations, threw his support behind U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., campaign to replace U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. in the Senate. Rubio is running for the Republican presidential nomination.
I strongly endorse Congressman Ron DeSantis for the United States Senate, Bolton said on Wednesday. America needs principled leaders like Ron standing up for Americas national security interests in Congress. Ron supports a strong national defense and has been forceful in raising alarms about the Iran nuclear framework that would pave Iran's path to the bomb. He is a stalwart defender of Israel as well as a major critic of the Obama administrations absurd Cuba policy. For Republicans who want America to remain strong at home by being strong abroad, and for those who recognize that we must remain ever vigilant in the defense of liberty, Congressman Ron DeSantis is the choice for U.S. Senate.
Ambassador Bolton and I are both Reagan conservatives deeply concerned with Americas declining standing abroad under this administration, and in the Senate I will do everything I can to turn that around, DeSantis said on Thursday. We must have a strong foreign policy that defends Americas vital national interests, stands by our allies and displays firmness with our enemies. When it comes to foreign policy, Floridians can count on me to stand with Israel, fight Iran's attempt to go nuclear, and oppose the dictatorial regimes in Cuba and Venezuela.
