Marilinda Garcia’s win Tuesday night was never in doubt. The question was, just how much would she win by?
In #NH02, I was not surprised to see that Garcia won. I was surprised to see that her victory was by > 20%.

The avalanche of outside spending on both sides, Club for Growth backing Garcia and the NRCC backing Lambert, made the race appear closer than it actually was. Despite her illustrious resume, Garcia does need some work on the stump, which was the only thing Lambert could have exploited. That didn't happen.
It’ll also be nice to see that idiotic War on Women meme shut down before the general ever begins.

If November pans out, Lambert and Kuster have this tweet by a Dem N.H. state rep to thank for their respective losses.
Garcia has the credentials. It's now up to her to finish the job.
