Scott Brown, the former U.S. Senator from Massachusetts, who lost his bid for re-election in November, may not be out of the political sphere just yet. Rumors are circulating that Brown, who won a 2010 special election to fill the late-Ted Kennedy’s seat in Washington, is being touted for a senate run in New Hampshire, where he would take on incumbent Democrat Jeanne Shaheen in 2014.
Speculation began when the senator, a recent addition to FOX News, made tweets solidifying his connection to New Hampshire.
Brown is already a well-known personality in the Granite state, as the greater part of New Hampshire falls under the Boston media market. In addition to the media's coverage of Brown's career, Brown’s wife, Gail Huff, was a news anchor in the market. The Browns own a coastal home in Rye.
The father of Ayla Brown, a former American Idol contestant, made headlines for his stint as Cosmopolitan magazine’s “America’s Sexiest Man,” and is believed to have moderate political stances that would align well with New Hampshire voters.
The senator, who has been mentioned as a possible GOP presidential candidate in 2016, will be a guest speaker at the Grafton County Republican Committee's Lincoln-Reagan Luncheon on Saturday, April 20.
New Hampshire is the nation's first presidential primary state.
