Garcia releases introductory television ad for 2nd Congressional District Republican primary
Marilinda Garcia has added her voice to the airwaves, the last major candidate in the race for the Republican nomination in the 2nd Congressional District to put out a television ad with a spot released yesterday.
Garcia, a state representative from Salem, faces former state senator Gary Lambert of Nashua and former state representative Jim Lawrence of Hudson in the Republican primary. The winner of the Sept. 9 primary will face Democratic incumbent U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster.
In the ad, which will run through the primary, Garcia narrates a list of recent scandals and alleged broken promises from Washington, including Benghazi, Veterans Affairs and the Affordable Care Act.
“It’s no wonder taxpayers are losing trust in government. We need a new generation of conservative leaders to challenge the status quo,” she says.
Over an upbeat score, Garcia says she’s “done that in New Hampshire.”
The ad isn’t the first time TV viewers have seen Garcia this summer, though. The conservative PAC Club For Growth spent hundreds of thousands of dollars airing an ad last month praising her record voting against taxes.
In his first ad, Lambert spent half of his time attacking Garcia for signing a resolution of a national conference of Hispanic state legislators, which said, in part, “legalizing the undocumented population lets us know who is living within our nation’s borders and allows our public safety representatives and first responders to focus time and resources on criminal elements intent on threatening our nation, citizens, freedoms, and way of life.”
Lawrence, who entered the primary race in June, aired an ad introducing himself to voters earlier this summer.
