Rep. Garcia should be treated as respected & honored opponent

To The Daily Sun,

In the 2012 elections, Democrats attacked Republicans as anti-women. This is par for the course in most of our elections, though there is no truth to it.

Fast forward to today. N.H. State Rep. Marilinda Garcia (R) throws her hat in the ring to challenge U.S. Congresswoman Anne Kuster (D). Within minutes of her announcement, N.H .State Rep. Peter Sullivan (D) hits the "Tweet" circuit. He infers that by adding former N.H. Speaker of the House Bill O'Brien and Kim Kardashian equals Marilinda Garcia. In another tweet, he says that Marilinda is Al Baldasarro in stiletto heels.

Marilinda Garcia is a rising star in the Republican Party and the Latino community. So many of us are proud of her, and her constituents keep sending her back to Concord to represent them. She must be doing something right!

The Democrat Party, and Rep. Peter Sullivan, should issue an apology for these types of derogatory comments. Rather than attack her personally as an enemy, why don't you do the right thing — treat her as a respected and honored opponent!
