New Hampshire candidate cashes in on campaign finance reform

U.S. Senate candidate Jim Rubens speaks with local citizens before a town meeting in WindhamBy Scott Malone WINDHAM N.H. (Reuters) – A dark horse in the New Hampshire race for the U.S. Senate who has been fighting big money in politics got a surprise boost last week from a like-minded group – to the tune of $2 million. A new political action committee, Mayday PAC, is backing the candidate in the state’s Republican primary, former state Senator Jim Rubens, with TV, radio and Internet ads as a test case in reforming American political campaign financing. Rubens said the cash from the super PAC has breathed life into his campaign against Scott Brown, a former U.S. senator from Massachusetts who has held a big lead in the polls and had a far larger war chest. “It has totally changed the conversation,” Rubens said in an interview.
