Wake up New Hampshire voters, Granny D may be coming to an election near you. According to an article by John Nichols in The Nation, the erstwhile campaign finance reformer is contemplating a run against incumbent Judd Gregg for U.S. Senate from New Hampshire.
Coming from a woman who walked over 3,000 miles across America in support of campaign finance reform, it is not surprising to hear that some of the issues she will focus on in the campaign and as Senator are the public financing of federal campaigns, child hunger in America, and serving the public interest, not that of big campaign contributors.
It is refreshing to see a regular person running for office instead of the normal run-of-the-mill professional politician. We could use more of this across America.
