New Hampshire Congressman Frank Guinta is holding his 12th town hall meeting in New Hampshire this year.

Guinta will take questions from voters Thursday night at Merrimack Town Hall. He says he wants to hear what's on their minds and discuss what he's doing to meet their needs in Washington.

A WMUR Granite State Poll released last week showed that half of New Hampshire residents think Guinta, a Republican, should resign amid his campaign finance troubles and 4 percent said they would back his re-election bid next year.

The Federal Election Commission says Guinta broke the law by accepting donations above the legal limit from his parents in 2010. Guinta says the $355,000 was his because for years he contributed to and managed a "family pot" of money.
