“At the time, Pelkey attempted to get help from Democratic Rep. Ann M. Kuster, the incumbent defending her 2nd Congressional District seat against Garcia in the Nov. 4 election.
Pelkey said he didn’t get an answer from Kuster, leading him to place his faith in Republican candidates.”

Marilinda Garcia visited several small businesses in Newport on Thursday, September 25. According to the Eagle Times article:
Republican Congressional candidate Marilinda Garcia returned to Newport for the fourth time Thursday and took a walking tour of the Main Street business community.
Popping in and out of a half dozen businesses, Garcia got to meet employees at two banks, an insurance agency, health facility, jewelry and clothing store before stopping by Pizza Village for lunch.
While there was some political talk along the way, it was mostly a time for Garcia, a resident of Salem, New Hampshire, to be introduced to a portion of the Newport business community. It appeared to be a trip that she thoroughly enjoyed at the grassroots level.
“I will take that experience to Congress and seek to take power from Washington with every vote and put it back in the hands of New Hampshire citizens with bottom-up common-sense policies," she said.
