"This woman can be beat, but don't think it's going to be a pushover," he said of Kuster.
He added: "Folks are hungry. The voters are starving for leaders, people they can trust, they can follow."
"I am passionate about preaching the message about the equality of opportunity," Garcia said. As Americans, "that's what makes us exceptional."
Lambert said the election is about winning over the middle class.
The Nashua resident left his state Senate seat in 2012 after one term to return to active duty as a colonel in the Marine Corps Reserve.
"I am not ready to stop serving my country. That's why I am running," he said.
Both candidates have made the pledge not to support the implementation of the Affordable Care Act in any form, including and not limited to Medicaid expansion.
When asked, both said they would be willing to take a pledge against raising any tax or adding any fees, fines or penalties at the federal level.
