The New Hampshire house of representatives failed Wednesday to override a veto of right-to-work legislation that has drawn the passing support of several GOP presidential candidates.

Supporters could not muster enough votes to block the state’s Democratic governor’s veto of the bill, which would prevent unions from collecting dues from non-members.

The issue has been hotly debated in New Hampshire and has occasionally bled over into the presidential campaign, when Republican candidates stumping here backed the blow to unions’ power.
