Kuster, Garcia highlight differences in forum

Associated Press

NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster says her business background and bipartisan approach sets her apart from her Republican challenger, while Marilinda Garcia says voters want someone who will be accessible to them and will stall President Barack Obama's failed policies.

The 2nd District opponents made separate appearances Thursday at a Nashua Chamber of Commerce forum. Kuster cited her long career as a lawyer and said unlike Garcia, she doesn't favor a "my way or the highway" approach to governing. Garcia cast Kuster as an Obama rubber stamp and someone who doesn't listen to constituents.

On a key local issue, Kuster said she would push hard for federal funding to expand passenger rail to Nashua if an upcoming feasibility study is positive. Garcia said she didn't know enough yet to comment.
