ABSTRACT
The article considers the influence of the new campaign law on the victory of Democrat John Durkin in a poll taken before the election in New Hampshire. The new law imposed a campaign ceiling of $220,000 on each candidate. The value of the services received by the candidate from organized labor should not be counted according to the new law. In political analyst Richard S. Scammon's view, the percentage increase in voter turnout can be attributed to organized labor. It is viewed that the labor exemption gives the new law a Democratic bias.
