Granny D - Super Duper Senior




Photo by John Hession She become known as the nation’s “oldest political newcomer.” She walked across the country for campaign finance reform and walked across the state to win votes for her quixotic Senate campaign. When she ran against powerful incumbent Judd Gregg with paltry funds (by modern campaign standards) and some pretty radical ideas (by New Hampshire standards), she nonetheless earned 34 percent of the vote. Now she’s been discovered by Hollywood, or at least by cable TV. A full-length documentary outlining her grassroots appeal, titled “Run Granny Run,” appears on HBO on Oct. 18 and Nov. 6. Seems like a lot to happen in such a short space of time, but it may be just the beginning for Doris Haddock, aka Granny D. After all, she’s only 94.
