I have a somewhat odd request. There are quite a number of interesting organizations opposing John Bolton’s nomination to serve as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, and among the roster of individuals — there are a lot of centrists, and even conservatives, who have been working against Bolton’s appointment. But the level of public overtness of these efforts varies.
For reasons I would rather not disclose, I’m interested in identifying a centrist 501(c)4 organization that is comfortable with a “high-road” opposition statement regarding John Bolton.
I don’t know if there are any out there — but it would be useful if folks in the know could email me any solid thoughts. Unfortunately, I don’t have time this week to track down leads and test the interest of institutions — so I’m mainly interested in people who have some leadership or board role in such organizations so that quick decisions can be made.
If this effort proceeds, I will disclose more later. . .but something potentially exciting and impactful on the Bolton debate is in the works.
