NHDP Statement on New Hampshire's 2nd Congressional District GOP Primary Results

Manchester, NH - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement regarding the New Hampshire 2nd Congressional GOP primary results:

“Throughout the primary, Bill O'Brien protege and Tea Party extremist Marilinda Garcia has shown her true colors by embracing a far-right, extremist agenda in Congress that would devastate New Hampshire middle-class families, including opposing equal pay for women, supporting steep cuts to Social Security, rejecting a raise in the minimum wage, and denying women a right to choose. Garcia said she'd even consider shutting down the federal government in order to push her Tea Party views, putting Granite State middle-class families at risk and causing reckless harm on our economy."

“On November 4th, Granite State voters will reject Marilinda Garcia's out-of-touch views and Tea Party agenda, and continue to support Congresswoman Annie Kuster's record of standing up for New Hampshire's middle-class, creating more jobs and opportunity for our workers, protecting Medicare and Social Security for our seniors, and fighting for equal pay for New Hampshire women and their families.”
