NHDP - Marilinda Garcia, Mike Pence and the Tea Party Fight Against Early Childhood Education 

Governor Pence Passes on Funding for Early Education in Indiana to Campaign in New Hampshire With Marilinda Garcia Who Voted to Repeal Public Kindergarden
Manchester, NH – As Marilinda Garcia welcomes fellow Tea Party conservative Indiana Governor Mike Pence to New Hampshire, she underscores both of their records on early education that side against the priorities of middle-class families, especially when it comes to access to affordable early education.

“It's only appropriate that Marilinda Garcia is rolling out the carpet for fellow Tea Party conservative Governor Mike Pence to join her on the campaign trail, as both candidates have long records of siding against middle-class priorities, especially when it comes to expanding access to affordable early education for hard-working families,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Deputy Communications Director Bryan Lesswing. “Pence is passing on funding for early childhood education in Indiana to instead make a trip to New Hampshire and campaign with Garcia, who voted as a state representative in favor of repealing public kindergarden and even voted against the measure that would have prevented further consideration of the bill.”

As a State Representative in 2011, Garcia voted in favor of repealing public kindergarten (HB631). She even doubled down to vote against the measure that would have prevented further consideration of the bill.

In a recent report, Governor Pence tossed plans to submit a grant for $80 million in pre-school funding that would have helped thousands of Hoosier middle-class families to instead “help other GOP leaders with issues in their states,” according to Pence's spokesperson. 

“By embracing anti-early education figures like Mike Pence, Marilinda Garcia makes it further clear that she's only interested in pushing her out-of-touch Tea Party views that would devastate Granite State middle-class families,” added Lesswing.
