Sen. Ted Cruz to rally for GOP congressional candidate Marilinda Garcia Sunday
Cruz is expected to backstop the Garcia campaign's insistence that she is focused on securing the border and opposing amnesty for illegal immigrants.
"I'm proud to support Marilinda Garcia in her campaign to represent New Hampshire's second congressional district because she is the candidate who will fight to stop President Obama's amnesty, work to secure the border, and celebrate a legal immigration system that both protects immigrants and our national security interests. Marilinda will stand up for the citizens of New Hampshire to repeal Obamacare, protect our constitutional rights, and restore jobs and economic growth."
He plans to speak to activists at the Republican State Committee's offices in Concord and Manchester on Sunday morning.
At issue is a resolution she co-sponsored last year at the National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators that called for comprehensive immigration reform. It including the wording "legalizing the undocumented population," which is part of the Lambert criticism.
The winner of Tuesday's primary will face Democratic Rep. Annie Kuster in the general election on Nov. 4.
