Former ambassador John Bolton's Political Action Committee, or PAC, is endorsing and contributing money to two more candidates in New Hampshire, Republican House hopefuls Frank Guinta and Marilinda Garcia. 

Bolton was President George W. Bush's ambassador to the United Nations. His political action committee is backing about two dozen candidates for federal office, including Guinta and Garcia, who won their primaries on Tuesday. 

Guinta, a former Manchester mayor, is running against 1st District Democrat Carol Shea-Porter for a third time . He defeated her in 2010 and lost to her in 2012.

Garcia, a state representative from Salem, is hoping to unseat 2nd District Democrat Annie Kuster. 

Bolton praised what he called Guinta's ``unparalleled'' experience and Garcia's ``energy and vision.'' He previously endorsed Republican Scott Brown for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire.
