DUBLIN, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire woman who walked across the country a
decade ago to publicize the need for campaign finance reform and hasn't let
up since is turning 100.

Doris "Granny D" Haddock of Dublin turned 100 yesterday, but will celebrate
Thursday when a variety of speakers honor her at a Statehouse ceremony.

Haddock was 89 when she walked 3,200 miles to draw attention to campaign
finance reform. At 94, she ran for U.S. Senate against Republican Judd
Gregg. Since then, she has been attending weekly meetings of the
Citizen-Funded Election Task Force, created by the Legislature to develop
proposals for public funding of state elections.

---------------------

A sweetie, with a strong handshake and a bit of a potty mouth. Many birthday
blessings, Granny D!
