HANOVER, N.H. (AP) - The Alabama woman whose lawsuit sparked the pay equity law that bears her name told a New Hampshire audience that voters should not trust Mitt Romney's campaign when it says the Republican wouldn't repeal the law.

Romney's campaign has said he has no interest in changing the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, the first legislation President Barack Obama signed into law as president. Campaigning for Obama in Hanover on Monday, Ledbetter said that's not good enough because he has what she called a history of flip-flopping. Romney's campaign also won't say whether he would have signed it if he were president, which Ledbetter said she takes as a "no."

In a sign of New Hampshire's role as a swing state, Romney also was in New Hampshire Monday.
