WASHINGTON, April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With $1.85M raised in the past two quarters, Americans from across the country have shown their support for the Ambassador. In a standout first quarter, Ambassador Bolton raised nearly $1.1 million including an impressive show of grassroots support with 87% of all online donations $100 or less, and the average direct mail contribution of less than $50. Cash on hand for the John Bolton PAC is approximately $318,038 and $1,135,676 for the SuperPAC, which will be used to help elect pro-national security candidates to the House and Senate this year.
"We are very pleased with our results both in the first quarter and since we started. The grassroots support and the number of contributors in these early days prove two things - first, Americans care strongly about our country's national security, and second, they are deeply concerned about the harm caused to that security over the past five years," said Ambassador John Bolton. "Our results demonstrate that candidates supporting a strong America will have the people behind them and we intend in the very near future to endorse candidates, make contributions and independent expenditures."
In the past three months the John Bolton PAC significantly expanded its grassroots support. The Ambassador raised nearly $210,000 online and grew the Facebook page by over 46,000 fans, while the Ambassador speaks daily to over 120,000 Twitter followers. Through its first direct mail effort, the Ambassador has raised over $100,000, underlining the resounding message that grassroots donors are heavily engaged in the effort and want national-security policy to be a critical factor in electing Federal officials.
