Garcia For Congress (CD2) - ICYMI: Union Leader Endorses Marilinda Garcia 


In case you missed it, the Union Leader earlier today endorsed Marilinda Garcia for the NH-02 Republican Primary. According to the Union Leader:

“Garcia is the kind of candidate Republicans should be nominating because she is a sharp, thoughtful conservative who can articulate her positions with a depth of understanding and a breadth of appeal that few candidates possess.”

“We have found Garcia to be a rare candidate who does not talk in soundbites, but rather prefers to explain her positions.”

“Republicans in the 2nd District would do well to make her their nominee for Congress.”

Lambert For Congress - Lambert Opposes Executive Amnesty; Calls on Congress to Delay Recess 

Nashua – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives failed to act on H.R. 5272, a bill prohibiting President Obama from exercising executive amnesty under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. In response, 2nd Congressional District candidate Gary Lambert released the following statement:


“The United States is country of laws; no one person is above the law,” said Lambert. “That’s why I deeply disappointed by the House’s inaction today. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program has been improperly used to encourage illegal immigration across our southern border. President Obama’s unilateral attempt to grant amnesty is wrong, it is illegal, and it must be stopped.”


“We must secure the border using boots on the ground, fencing in appropriate areas, and aerial assets such as drones and we must do it now. I call on Congress to postpone their month-long August vacation, stay in Washington to do their jobs, and pass legislation securing the border once and for all. The American people deserve better than a do-nothing Congress who leaves town without doing their job in the midstof a crisis.





H.R. 5272 prohibits the federal government from 1) expanding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which has effectively granted temporary legal status to certain unlawful aliens who came to the U.S. before age 16; 2) authorizing new deferred action for any class of aliens; or 3) newly authorizing any alien to work in the U.S. if he or she was not lawfully admitted into the U.S. and is not lawfully present.


Garcia For Congress - Marilinda Garcia Clear Winner in NH-2 Debate 




CONCORD, NH (07/30/14) – Kenny Cunningham, communications director for Marilinda Garcia for Congress, issued the following statement in response to today’s radio debate between Marilinda Garcia and her primary opponents.

“Voters listening to today’s radio debate should have a clear understanding as to why Marilinda Garcia is the only Republican candidate who can defeat Rep. Ann Kuster and be an effective leader in Washington. Marilinda addressed the important issues of our day, including Obamacare, immigration, energy and local control of schools.  In contrast, Gary Lambert continued his pattern of skirting many issues, failing to defend his vote in opposition to local control of schools and his support for federal education standards. Additionally, he once again struggled to defend his support for the big government, job-killing Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, a local cap and trade scheme. New Hampshire deserves a legislator who is proud of their record and willing to discuss the issues that are important to the Granite State."
