The Republican candidates gunning for federal office in New Hampshire are all trying to put the Democratic incumbents on defense over the Affordable Care Act, whose New Hampshire rollout has been rocky.
But one of the most avid critics, Second District GOP nominee, Marilinda Garcia, is declining to say how she gets coverage.
Former ambassador John Bolton's Political Action Committee, or PAC, is endorsing and contributing money to two more candidates in New Hampshire, Republican House hopefuls Frank Guinta and Marilinda Garcia.
Bolton was President George W. Bush's ambassador to the United Nations. His political action committee is backing about two dozen candidates for federal office, including Guinta and Garcia, who won their primaries on Tuesday.
Scott Brown was the front runner the moment he entered this race -- his third Senate run in five years -- and he topped a field that included former U.S. Senator Bob Smith and former State Senator Jim Rubens by about 20 points.
In his victory speech, Brown targeted President Obama as much as incumbent Democrat Jeanne Shaheen -- their race is one of a handful that will decide which party controls the Senate.
There were nine primaries in New Hampshire’s state Senate yesterday; eight of them between Republicans.
Two Republican incumbents – David Boutin of Hooksett, and Nancy Stiles of Hampton –beat back more conservative challengers. Boutin’s race the tougher: he bested former state rep Jane Cormier by single digits.
The one Democratic primary was in Merrimack County. It was to fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Senate President Sylvia Larsen. Concord School Board member Kass Ardinger – who was endorsed by Larsen – was routed by Dan Feltes, a legal aid lawyer.
State Representative Marilinda Garcia won the Republican primary for New Hampshire’s second congressional district.
After claiming her victory before a crowd of cheering supporters, Marilinda Garcia took aim at Obamacare, and linked Representative Annie Kuster to one of the president’s most significant and controversial policies.
She asked for the crowd’s continued support "getting through November and...repealing and replacing Representative Kuster."
For the third time, former Congressman Frank Guinta will face Carol Shea-Porter for New Hampshire's District 1 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Guinta won the Republican nomination in Tuesday's primary, taking 49 percent of the vote.
Dan Innis, former dean of the Whittemore School of Business and Economics at the University of New Hampshire and co-owner of Portsmouth’s Ale House Inn, received 41 percent, while libertarian Brendan Kelly won 8 percent.
