"Although Granny D passed away in March 2010, her inspiration continues to energize NH citizens and her friends throughout the country to pave the way for public financing of elections, especially in the wake of the lamentable Citizens United case," she said in a statement. Supreme Court sided with Citizens United, the conservative lobbying group, when it ruled in 2010 that the first amendment prohibits the government from restricting political expenditures by corporations, associations or labor unions.
The issue is quite significant in New Hampshire, Zink said, pointing to the 2012 gubernatorial race as an example.
