The super PAC of John Bolton, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, plans to make its first expenditure in a congressional race in New Hampshire, The Daily Caller has learned.

The organization — known as the John Bolton Super PAC — is spending $30,000 on digital ads attacking New Hampshire Democratic Rep. Ann Kuster for flubbing a question about the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi.

The ad shows video of Kuster, during a town hall meeting in Manchester, getting flustered over questions about the attacks.

“That she is unable to address her constituents’ questions about the Benghazi tragedy is shocking at best,” Bolton said in a statement provided to TheDC.

Bolton’s super PAC says it aims to “make America’s defense and national security significant factors in federal elections.”

Bolton’s super PAC has raised $3 million and has over $2.5 million cash on hand.

The Republican, who appears in the video, has flirted with running for president before.
