HAMPTON, N.H. (AP) - Some 400 members of a non-partisan group pushing for campaign finance overhaul are on a 16-mile march along the seacoast to bring attention to the cause.

The “New Hampshire Rebellion” is taking a page from Doris “Granny D.” Haddock’s book. She was the New Hampshire woman who gained acclaim in 1999-2000 by walking 3,200 miles across the country to lobby for changes in the campaign finance system.

The Portsmouth Herald ( ) reports that the group heard from founder and Harvard law professor Lawrence Lessig before leaving on the walk Saturday morning.

The group has also walked in other parts of New Hampshire.

The group wants to get every candidate for federal office on the record saying pledging to work to eliminate the influence of money on elections.
