Editor's Note: There are just 29 days until Election Day, and the NBC News political unit each day will profile the most competitive races this midterm season.

GOP state Rep. Marilinda Garcia is everything Republicans could want in a rising star– she’s young, telegenic and Hispanic. She’s also an unapologetic conservative (she suggested that the president has “many, many impeachable offenses,” for example) who may just be too far to the right in a district that’s supported Obama by double digits twice. She’s facing incumbent Democrat Rep. Ann McLane Kuster.
