Garcia For Congress (CD2) - Open letter to Ann Kuster from Marilinda Garcia 


Dear Representative Kuster,

New Hampshire is facing several difficult challenges including a lack of access to affordable health care, an increasingly unfavorable business climate, and some of the highest energy prices in the country.

The people of New Hampshire deserve to know where we both stand on these important issues before they cast their votes in November. They deserve to hear us both propose our solutions to these challenges, and discuss how our records and philosophies impact our ability to deliver for the people of the Second District in Congress.

Therefore, I respectfully request that you join me in participating in a Town Hall forum in which we can engage in an honest and open discussion of the issues that are important to New Hampshire.

I know you have commitments in Washington, but Congress is not in session between September 20 and 28, and after October 3.

If you have any availability at all during this time, I would be happy to clear my schedule and make time for a Town Hall Forum. You may also choose the location of this Town Hall meeting, so that it is not an inconvenience for you.

I can even take care of the travel arrangements and arrange for someone to drive you to whatever location you choose.

Please feel free to contact me at 603-562-0222 so we may discuss this further and finalize the necessary details.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Garcia For Congress (CD2) - What they are saying is Marilinda Garcia for NH-02 



“What They Are Saying

Is Marilinda Garcia for NH-02”

 Marilinda Garcia Predicted to Win the NH-02 GOP Primary

JIM MERRILL, GOP Strategist: “I think Garcia’s going to win." (Holly Ramer, “N.H. primary races have featured feuds, fresh faces,” Concord Monitor 9/8/14)

TED CRUZ, US Senator (R-TX): “If you oppose amnesty and support rule of law, vote for Marilinda Garcia.”(Sarah Palermo ”Garcia rallies with Ted Cruz, Lambert looks for close contact with voters in deadline to Tuesday’s 2nd Congressional District Republican primary,”Concord Monitor 9/8/14)

Garcia, a state representative and the GOP favorite in Tuesday's primary.” (Hillary Vaugh “Sen. Ted Cruz Confident About Chances Of New Hampshire Congressional Hopeful, Marilinda Garcia,” Fox News Latino 9/8/14)

TOM THOMPSON, Honorary Chairman of Americans for Prosperity – NH: “On September 9th, we will be voting for Marilinda Garcia.” (John Distaso, “Campaign notes: Last-minute endorsements; Dems on the phone; Buckley’s ‘expectations’ of Walt,” NH Journal 9/8/14)

“Her fellow Democratic congresswoman, Annie Kuster, is no lock to return to Washington, either; she could face a tough race against conservative rising star Marilinda Garcia.”(Emily Cadei, “Electing Women in 2014: Two Steps Forward, One Step Back,” Ozy 9/8/14)

State Sen. Marilinda Garcia is considered one of the GOP's bright young prospects.” (Samantha Lachman “Primary Season Comes To A Close As Scott Brown, Martha Coakley Seek Redemption,” Huffington Post 9/8/14)

Another young candidate receiving national GOP attention, Marilinda Garcia.” (Martha Shanahan, “Voters set for NH primary elections Tuesday,” Keene Sentinel 9/8/14

Garcia’s collection of endorsements from not only Cruz, but also from fellow border hawks Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley and Texas Governor Rick Perry, is not only impressive for a 31 year-old rookie congressional candidate. It’s made Lambert’s Hail Mary pass of trying to tie Garcia to amnesty appear even more ludicrous.” (Robert Charette, “Don’t You Mess With Marilinda Garcia,” Washington Free Beacon 9/9/14)


Garcia For Congress (CD2) - Marilinda Garcia for Congress Releases New TV Ad 



Concord, NH – Kenny Cunningham, communications director for Marilinda Garcia for Congress, today released the following statement regarding the release of the below television advertisement

“Earlier this week, in the Granite State Debate, Gary Lambert proclaimed that he has never supported Common-Core standards or harmful cap-and-trade schemes in New Hampshire," said Cunningham. "As shown by this latest television ad, Gary Lambert’s voting record does not back up these misleading claims. Mr. Lambert has voted three times to defend New Hampshire’s involvement in a costly cap-and-trade scheme called the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative; his was even the deciding vote to save RGGI in New Hampshire from repeal. To double-down on his support for burdensome energy mandates, Lambert penned a pro cap-and-trade editorial in a California newspaper, showing his desire to spread this program from coast to coast and burden more Americans with higher energy costs.

Gary Lambert again attempted to mislead voters when he claimed to oppose Common-Core federal education standards. In actuality, he voted to limit the New Hampshire State Legislature’s ability to stop Common Core in New Hampshire, and declared in a 2010 survey that he fully supports federally mandated education programs."
