NHDP Statement on Tonight's 2nd Congressional Debate 

Manchester, NH – New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley released the following statement after tonight's New Hampshire 2nd Congressional debate:

"In tonight's debate, Tea Party extremist Marilinda Garcia doubled down on her Koch Brothers agenda that would devastate New Hampshire middle-class families. Garcia dodged questions about her far-right record, including opposing the Violence Against Women Act, eliminating the Department of Education and federal student loans, and banning abortion in all cases even to save the life of the mother."

"Garcia has proven time and time again that her out-of-touch Tea Party views are too extreme for Granite Staters, which is why voters will continue to stand with Congresswoman Annie Kuster who is working across the aisle to fight for the best interests of New Hampshire.”
