Group walks across N.H. for campaign reform

TILTON, N.H. — The late Doris Haddock, the New Hampshire great-grandmother better known as “Granny D,” once walked across the country to draw attention to the need for campaign finance reform.

For the past two weeks, a group of activists has been walking in her footsteps and in her honor — traversing 185 miles of New Hampshire, from north to south — to highlight what they see as a system of corruption in Washington surrounding that issue. By making grass-roots connections with voters along the way, through town hall-type forums and one-on-one conversations, the so-called NH Rebellion is challenging the next round of presidential candidates to take on the issue in 2016.
