The Club for Growth PAC has endorsed state Rep. Marilinda Garcia in the GOP primary in New Hampshires 2nd District.
Garcia faces former state Sen. Gary Lambert on Sept. 9, and the winner will challenge Democratic Rep. Ann McLane Kuster in November.

Isn’t that the muzzie Grover Norquist’s group?
That’s Americans for Tax Reform.
I’ve met her. Smart, young, attractive Hispanic. But, she has a problem with a local issue that’s killing her with the GOP base in NH. She represents the Salem area where she was the deciding vote against a casino. The area she represents held a non-binding vote for a casino that won by over 80%.
In her defense, she ran for the NH house saying she would vote to veto a casino. In any event the voters are not happy with her & she is going to have a difficult time gaining any traction in the election.
Is the Club for Growth conservative?
Great to hear! Looks like the stars are aligning for Marilinda. The NH-02 is the more Democrat of the state’s two CDs (Obama carried it by 54.2% to 44.5% over Romney, but freshman Congresswoman Annie Kuster is a lackluster candidate and eminently beatable; Marilinda Garcia could become the most conservative Represetative from NH-02 in decades.
Their donors are pro-amnesty so they have to stick to fiscal attacks on RINOs. Which often don’t work. But they aren’t stupid enough to start pushing for amnesty. Then they wonder why Brat won with no support.
Bob Perry, who passed away, left money to Cornyn and Club For Growth.
Madison Project and Senate Conservatives are the better groups.
They are a premier fiscal conservative group that has nothing to do with pushing shamesty. They were big backers of Chris McDaniel.
Not to mention one of the most attractive Congresswoman of all time and a contender for the top spot to be sure. Her exact birthday isn’t listed but it says circa 1983 so she might possibly be slightly younger than the current female record holder, rat Liz Holtzman of NY (31 at first election).
Elise Stefanik is 29 and will (knock on wood) take over the spot of youngest Congresswoman ever. She would also be (unless a younger male is elected, maybe Paul Dieztel in Louisiana?) the first member of Congress younger than me (I was born Oct. 1983). A sobering thought. The current youngest member, rat Patrick Murphy of Florida is 6 months my senior.
When there’s a SENATOR that’s younger than me I will truly feel old.
Here's a picture of the lovely state Representative Marilinda Garcia:
Kuster, like many Red Hampshire women; is a foul-mouth skank.
Eh, she's cute, but I certainly wouldn't vote for her in the primary.
There was that story circulating a couple months back about the conservative WV high school student who defeated a GOP incumbent in the primary. She’ll be 18 by November (and its a safe GOP legislative district that voted heavily for Obama), so that gives her over a decade before she’s even eligible to run for the U.S. Senate. She can serve four terms and then she’ll be old enough for Congress. ;-)
Yes, I meant Holtzman has the age record. ;p She was born in ‘41 and elected in ‘72.
The current best looking I would say is rat Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, who may also deserve the all time top spot. There’s not a terribly great amount of competition, sadly. Of course most ladies are older when elected, some of them may have been lookers back in the day.
Nothing would be better than electing tons of beautiful young conservative Republican women to Congress.
Agreed. Club for Growth concentrates exclusively on fiscal issues (which they are indeed the most reliable organization) and most of their endorsements are pretty solid (there are some exceptions like Jeff Flake). In any case, even the "bad" endorsements are still good on fiscal issues.
I found it amusing that people loved to slam Huckabee around as a "socialist" in 2008 because of his weak scores from Club for Growth, but then in 2012, when Rick Santorum got a much BETTER Club for Growth score card than Newt Gingrich, the Newt crowd here ignored it and insisted that Santorum was the "fiscally liberal" candidate and their guy Newt was the only "principled small government Reagan conservative" when HE was the one on record supporting the bank bailouts and porkulus. But hey, who cares about facts? ;-)
So I'd consider a Club for Growth endorsement to be a positive and I don't think the organizations is in any way pro-amnesty (although a handful of their candidates are). On the other hand, Marilinda Garcia's being on the board of "Americans by Choice" is very problematic, IMO.
They say she’s open to shamesty like so many otherwise good conservatives, but her main opponent, Gary Lambert, hardly appears to be more conservative, and is surely less electable.
This is the first cycle I could have run for the Senate. About 14 years ago I was plotting my future run against Durbin. ;p
Sadly, I’d have about the same chance that Uberdouche has at beating him.
I don’t know what “Americans by Choice” espouses, but Marilinda Garcia’s only two immigration-related votes in the NH legislature were not that of an open-borders/amnesty fan:
Marilinda Garcia voted Yea (Passage) - HB 1405 - Authorizes Moratoriums on Refugee Resettlements
Marilinda Garcia voted Yea (Passage) - HB 1383 - Prohibits In-State Tuition for Non-US Residents
She voted to prohibit in-state tuition for illegal aliens; how about that?
There’s a third candidate, Jim Lawrence, who looks pretty credible on paper (Ex-State Rep., USAF Veteran, etc.) and solid on the issues: http://www.lawrenceforcongress.com/home.html I don’t know if he’s competitive in the polls, though. Not sure of his ethnic background either (Garcia is half spanish and half italian and 100% cutie)
Looking back at the earlier posts on this thread, it seems Garcia’s main obstacle to the nomination isn’t her squishiness on illegals, but her casino vote. NH-2 is a tough district for any Republican to win so I’d have no problem supporting her over the RAT in the general, but she wouldn’t be my pick in the primary.
>> I dont know what Americans by Choice espouses <<
From the looks of it, they seem to be the amnesty-equivalent of “GOProud” is for gay rights:
That being said, I will concede her record on immigration doesn’t look half bad.
Lawrence was a late entry, I’m not sure if he’s a real contender or not but he sounds like a fine choice also. He’s reportedly the first Black candidate to run for Congress from NH.
Jim Lawrence is black. He served three terms in the state house, having first been elected in 2002 (I assume that he lost reelection in 2008 along with so many other NH Republicans), and compiled a conservative voting record. He is trying to run to Marilinda Garcia’s right, but his own campaign’s statements make it evident that both candidates are conservative: Lawrence touts a 98% conservative rating from the state’s House Republican Alliance during his final term in office, while Garcia’s conservative rating from the same group was 96%.
Frankly, I think both candidates are fine (as is Lambert), and I’d take whichever candidate has the best chance of winning the general in that Democrat-leaning district. I think that Garcia will have a better chance of picking up the female vote (and the horny male vote), and she’s stayed in the public eye through her continued service in the NH House, so right now I’m supporting Garcia.
Speaking of that, of the 100 Senators serving when I was born, only 22 are still alive. No Senators are younger than me yet. Patrick McHenry became the first House member younger than me a decade ago, though I was less than a month younger than Adam Putnam when he was elected in 2000.
Okay, thanks for the info.
I think we could do with some younger Senators but I certainly won’t root for it!
Is anyone younger than you likely to be elected this time? Doesn’t look like it. Sasse was born in ‘72, Erst in ‘70.
Oh, Alison Grimes, November 23rd 1978, turns 36 later this year, I certainly hope that witch isn’t elected.
Ben Sasse is a couple of months older than me.
DJ claims to be a “Watergate Baby” because he was born in 1974, when all the “Watergate Babies” were elected to Congress, but I was born less than two months before the break-in, dagnabbit!
Yeah, Grimes might get it. Mitch will be entirely to blame if she does. Maybe Rand will get a tingle up his leg because of more “crossover voting” (of course, it will be angry Conservatives voting against Mitch), which he thinks is peachy keen.
I doubt the people of the Kentucky will be so retarded as to vote in an Obamabot. But it seems like half of this site is pulling for her, which is sickening.
Mitch makes it all possible.
I don't see Grimes winning either (of course, I noted there was no way Cochran could win the runoff unless MS had an open primary and there was tons of RAT crossover voting... which is unfortunately what happened)
The other long shot for Grimes is Rand getting his way with allowing convicted felons to vote, which would be a boon for the RATs and possibly starve off their defeat in several races where they're vulnerable in 2014. It's getting to the point that we don't need enemies with him on "our" side.
I think myopia on our own side makes it possible, people pretended that Paultard loser Bevin had a chance, then got mad when he lost, absurd. I’m more interested in beating the rats than taking part in circular firing squads pointed at the congressional leadership. Seems like some people would like to see the democrats gain several Senate seats, which is an ignorant and dangerous attitude.
If KY conservatives wanted Mitch gone they needed a real challenger, they didn’t have one, so his renomination was a fait accompli, I don’t see much point in complaining about it now. That *itch Grimes must be defeated.
Have we really become as crass as the Democrats, referring to a lady such as Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes simply by her last name? Would you have referred to First Lady Martha Dandridge Custis Washington as “Washington”? For shame.
I, for one, always refer to Alison Lundergan Grimes as “Grimey,” as she prefers to be called.
A Senate with more democrats would be a much bigger problem.
I’d much rather have McConnell as Majority Leader than Cornyn as Minority Leader.
Some people wouldn’t seem to mind an 80-20 rat Senate so long as it was 20 Ted Cruzs, that’s insane.
Better they serve as Democrats openly than serve as such covertly within the GOP. That $23 million has been spent in this cycle, explicitly to defeat Conservatives within the GOP is criminal. I’d rather have 40 honest Senate Conservatives than 60 dishonest establishment RINOs.
60 democrats resulted in Obamacare.
I’m beginning to think that all democrats should be referred to only as “pig”, but that might get confusing. ;p
I hope Grimey meets the same end as her namesake, figuratively speaking of course.
2 RINOs resulted in a President Obama.
Rich Hill, first appearance of year, in 9th inning for LA Angels right now.
BoSox traded him to LAA for cash last nite. (He was opting out, forcing a trade.)
Rich Hill. Faces 3 batters, wild, loads bases. Lifted.
Rich Hill, ex-Cub, forgot how to throw strikes and then fell off the edge of the Earth. He’s lucky he’s a lefty, if he were a righty I think he’d be done.
while he was off earth, he had TJ surgery. Should be back to mlb ready now. he was dominant for Sox before TJ as a LOOGY. whatever that is.
lefty only one guy. ?
Cubs are unstoppable vs. boSox. Cubs run differential very close.
Indians get triple play vs. Dodgers.
Lefty one out guy. Valuable enough to keep him employed.
Boston has a better record than the Cubs despite a much worse run differential. Boy they suck.
Sadly, so do the White Sox. Thankfully the futbol has provided a distraction from the beisbol.
Could Toronto! or Baltimore really win the AL east? Oh what a world.
Kane County Cougars
that is the ticket to have.
16-9! Crikey. Cubs sweep.
Cubs trade Samardzija and Jason Hammel to the A’s for propsects.
Cubs loaded with SS talent now. Short on pitching. Where’s the pitching, Theo? A Trade of Starlin Castro would make sense now.
