Doris "Granny D" Haddock (January 24, 1910[1]March 9, 2010[2]) was an American politician and liberal political activist from the state of New Hampshire. Between 1999 and 2000, over a span of fourteen months, Haddock walked 3,200 miles across the continental United States to advocate campaign finance reform. In 2004 she ran unsuccessfully as a Democratic challenger to incumbent Republican Judd Gregg for the U.S. Senate.


"Democracy is not something we have, it's something we do."[3]

"I, for one, am certainly going to continue to raise a little hell." (discussing her post-election life in her documentary)

"I may have lost the election but I have not lost my reason to live."

"Our country is supposed to be of the people, by the people and for the people, and if that's not worth fighting for I don't know what is."

"I want to plant a few more seeds here and there before they plant me."
