Democrats Tell NH Parents, Teachers, And Administrators They Are Stupid

Thumbnail image for Democrats Tell NH Parents, Teachers, And Administrators They Are Stupid

I caught the end of a commercial by (I believe it was paid for by the) DCCC that described NH Congressional District two candidate Marilinda Garcia as an education risk not worth taking.  Seems the Dems are working the rope line on “Garcia wants to shut down the Federal Department of Education” and hey– that’s […]

Ann Kuster’s Empty Chair

by Steve MacDonald October 3, 2014
Thumbnail image for Ann Kuster’s Empty Chair

Hot Air  As for ((Marilinda Garcia’s) opponent, Congresswoman Kuster hasn’t held a town hall meeting with her constituents since her 2012 victory; that’s over 600 days. In a region of the country where voters like–and expect–these events from their representatives, it’s rubbed some voters the wrong way. Local New Hampshire newspapers have published letters to […]

Having just won her primary a few days ago Marilinda Garcia has already done something no Democrat woman elected to Federal office from New Hampshire have done, at least in recent memory.  She is holding a…..(dramatic crescendo!)  Town hall meeting. Her opponent Ann ‘Where is Benghazi?’ Kuster, is invited to take questions along-side Garcia, but […]

Guest Post – Marilinda Garcia

by Granite Grok September 9, 2014

As a new-generation conservative, I am running to keep New Hampshire independent and roll back the radical transformation of America caused by President Obama and liberals like Ann Kuster. My plan includes reducing the size and cost of the federal government, and restoring constitutionally limited government that puts more power in the hands of the […]

NH CD-2 Race Makes The Weekly Standard

by Steve MacDonald September 6, 2014
Thumbnail image for NH CD-2 Race Makes The Weekly Standard

TWS Garcia, a 31-year-old state representative named a “rising star” by the RNC, has long been seen as more conservative than Lambert, a former state senator who has taken liberal positions on abortion and cap-and-trade. “Early in his campaign for Congress, Gary Lambert was privately telling Republicans that they should choose him because Marilinda Garcia was too […]

Mr. Lambert’s Troubles

by Steve MacDonald September 5, 2014

I never did take the Lambert campaign to task for their TV ad attacking Marilinda Garcia.  The ad is awful.  Worse than the mailer.  And while I have no problem with attack ads that base their points of facts, this ad bases it on things that the Lawyer Gary Lambert, should know would never hold […]

Why Doesn’t Lambert for Congress Mailer Cite GraniteGrok.com?

GraniteGrok is both flattered and confused.  The Lambert for Congress campaign recently sent out a mailer in which they referenced a web address attached to a video we posted here. Along side the link address were additional references supporting the same claim cited as “Ernst & Young Study September 2011, Shapiro McArthur Study June 2009. […]

GrokTV: Jane Cormier house event – Intro Ceremonies

by Skip July 21, 2014

As I said here (“GrokSHOT!: “If we just make you all the same, you’ll all be happy”“), yesterday afternoon was one of those ubiquitous political home events that are now happening around NH – the State that knows how to do retail politics right.  Listen to them, look them in the eye, shake their hand […]

GrokSHOT!: “If we just make you all the same, you’ll all be happy”

by Skip July 20, 2014

This afternoon was spent at the McManus home event thrown for Jane Cormier who is running against the Establishment Republican Dave Boutin (who voted to move FORWARD! the twin Democrat agenda items of raising taxes (the gas tax) and making State Government MUCH bigger (Obamacare’s Medicaid Expansion) by voting for both) for the NH State Senate Primary.  About […]

Yes, A Push Poll Would BE Illegal

by Steve MacDonald July 11, 2014

File under ‘Nuance.’ Rumor has it the Lambert campaign may have taken issue with my calling their poll a push poll, twice.  Or was it three times?  A push poll would be illegal. If it were to go to court, they might have a case, but quite often it is a matter of envelopes being […]

The Club For Growth issued a followup to their endorsement of New Hampshire CD-2 Candidate for Congress, Marilinda Garcia.  In their missive they reiterate their support for Garcia, and make a clarion call for donations to support her.  But they also take a shot at her opponent Gary Lambert.  Given my recent posts on push polling […]

I’ve been looking through pictures from the Amherst 4th -o-July parade.  Grokster Mike has a pile of them posted here.  There are more littered around the internet so I went looking because something caught my eye.  The support for Candidates from NH Congressional District 2 looked very unbalanced to me. Col. Gary Lambert has a […]

GrokTV: Marilinda Garcia’s “Race to Congress” event Micro-interview – Jim Adams

by Skip June 29, 2014

At most campaign events, there will almost always be other folks running for elected office.  No different at this event either, as I ran into Jim Adams who is running for Executive Council in District 4 and will have a primary against Bob Burns (whom GraniteGrok endorsed in the last cycle).  However, we pretty much will […]

Club For Growth Endorses Marilinda Garcia For CD2

by Mike June 27, 2014

This, as Joe the Gaffe-r would say, is a Big Freaking Deal. From personal experience, I know that Club For Growth does not endorse lightly, and does due diligence on the candidate’s philosophy and voting record. Do not be fooled by the pleasant young lady – she is from the party of “Hell, NO”, when […]
