John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, has announced the launch of a political action committee to support candidates for the House and Senate in 2014.

The missions of the John Bolton PAC and the John Bolton SuperPAC "are to seek out and support candidates for nomination and election to federal office who are committed to restoring strong American national security policies," Bolton said in a news release.

"In the coming weeks and months, I hope that we can stand together and begin the difficult work of undoing the damage [President Barack] Obama has done to our country."

Bolton served as ambassador to the U.N. from August 2005 to December 2006. He also was one of Mitt Romney's top foreign policy advisers during the 2012 presidential campaign.

Newsmax reported in June that Bolton was being encouraged by leading conservatives to consider a presidential bid in 2016. He is reportedly giving a run serious consideration.

In launching his PAC, Bolton said he is "concerned about our future," calling Obama "weak and indecisive" when crises strike abroad.

"We need leaders who understand that America's liberty, prosperity and national security are inextricably linked," he said. "For too long, we have accepted arbitrary and unnecessary divisions between our understanding of U.S. economic prosperity and U.S. national security and foreign policy.

"We must be prepared to do what it takes to protect the idea of American exceptionalism and our basic Constitutional priorities — the preservation of which are essential not only to our security, but to our prosperity as well," Bolton said.

"It is time to dedicate ourselves to the work of change — to refocus our national priorities on the fundamentals that make us strong so that we can remain free."
