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.”
Harman has a reputation as a hawkish, pro-Israel conservative. She once called herself “the best Republican in the Democratic Party.” She voted to authorized the war in Iraq and supported the Bush administration’s warrantless wiretapping policy.
Fein, a consultant and former CNBC assistant producer, has challenged the Democrat on national security issues, pointing out that Harman — one of the richest members of Congress — profits from her husband’s electronics company, which does business with Iran. She highlighted that issue in a humorous video that portrayed dual-use technology as a Frankenstein monster.
