Former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton has raised millions for two conservative PACS bearing his name, a sign that he is either going to the mat for fellow Republicans or preparing for his own run for the White House in 2016, Politico reports.

Together, the John Bolton PAC and the John Bolton Super PAC have raised $6.5 million over the past year, according to Politico, allowing Bolton “to build a fundraising list and social media presence that could prove valuable in GOP politics either raising money for other candidates or potentially for his own 2016 run.”

In the last quarter, the PAC raised $716,000 and the Super PAC hauled in $1.8 million. The former has endorsed or donated to 76 House and Senate candidates, giving a total of $415,000.

The Super PAC has been spending its money on ad campaigns for Republican Senate candidates locked in tight races in key battleground races, according to Politico.

Bolton will be in New Hampshire this week to stump for the House campaigns of Marilinda Garcia and former Rep. Frank Guinta, while his super PAC is running campaigns supporting former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown (he’s challenging Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen) and opposing Garcia’s Democratic opponent, Rep. Ann McLane Kuster, according to Politico.

The PACs “have given Bolton a platform to espouse his hawkish foreign policy views in key presidential states, while supporting – and collecting chits from – ideologically aligned Republican candidates across the country,” Politico reports.

In September, Breitbart reported that the John Bolton Super PAC announced it would spend $5 million for online ads in three key Senate races –  New Hampshire, Arkansas and North Carolina.

The unique, web-only ad buy, is placing the spots on Google, Facebook, Twitter, Pandora, and other online channels.

He told Breitbart that his primary goal was “to get candidates who believe in strong national security policies elected to office.”

The ads, customized for each state and candidate, hammer President Barack Obama’s “feckless foreign policy.”
