Ambassador Bolton: Wendy Long's "superbly qualified" and the candidate who can beat Gillibrand
By Michael Gaynor

Long already earned a place on the ballot in the November general election.

John R. Bolton, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, endorsed Wendy Long for the Republican nomination for United States Senator from New York.

Bolton: "Wendy Long is superbly qualified to represent New York as a U.S. Senator and is the only candidate who can defeat Kirsten Gillibrand in November."

Why Long, instead of first-term Congressman Bob Turner and first-term Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos?


"In an era when many candidates are lacking in the credentials needed for higher office, Wendy Long is superbly qualified to represent New York in the U.S. Senate. Wendy has served on the staff of two Senators and has also clerked for a Justice of the Supreme Court. She understands the workings of both the judicial and legislative branches of our government and has put that knowledge to work for the executive branch in her effort to ensure the Senate confirmation of Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Sam Alito to the Supreme Court.

"Wendy is a fiscal conservative who understands the urgent need to cut taxes, cut spending, and reduce the size of our federal government so that businesses can grow, creating jobs and opportunity for all Americans. She also understands that a prime obligation of a U.S. Senator — particularly one from New York — is to defend the security and sovereignty of America, and that nothing, including political correctness, can stand in the way of that obligation.

"When it comes to foreign policy, Wendy understands and embraces the concept of peace through strength. She understands that rogue nations like North Korea and Iran are threats to world peace and are not to be trusted. Wendy also shares my belief that Israel is our one true ally in the Middle East and that the United States must play a crucial role in the defense of its borders and its citizens.

"I urge all Republicans to join with me in supporting Wendy Long in the June 26 primary for U.S. Senate."

Long, a registered Republican is facing the same two challengers in the June 26th GOP primary that she bested, initially with 91% of the vote and then unanimously, at the New York Conservative Party Convention last March.

Long already earned a place on the ballot in the November general election.

How either of the two challengers plans to win a three-way race is a mystery.

Long gratefully responded: "I thank Ambassador Bolton for his kind words and support. His service to our nation and his outspoken defense of its principles and values have inspired my campaign, and I shall rely upon his wisdom on national security, foreign policy and defense issues during the campaign and as a United States Senator."
