Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton will campaign Tuesday for GOP congressional candidate Mattie Fein, who is challenging Democrat Rep. Jane Harman in California's 36th District.

Speaking at a breakfast event at the Proud Bird restaurant in Los Angeles and a VIP fundraising luncheon at the Drago restaurant in Santa Monica, Bolton is expected to hit Harman's record on national security and foreign policy.

"I am privileged and honored by the support of Ambassador John Bolton, a Mount Rushmore giant in the field of national security," Fein said in a statement.

The Republican candidate, who has been critical of GOP leadership for their unwillingness to support her challenge to Harman, added: "Ambassador Bolton has shown he's a man interested in putting our national security first and not throwing  my candidacy under the bus just to receive front row tickets at Harman's Shakespeare Theatre as other Republicans have done."
