Former Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA), who lost his seat in last year's election, has made another move suggesting he's preparing to run for the Senate in next-door New Hampshire.
Scott Brown, the former Republican U.S. Senator from Massachusetts, has found a buyer for his Wrentham home and plans to move to New Hampshire, according to his boss, Andrew I. Glincher, managing partner and chief executive officer of Nixon Peabody LLP.
The move will fuel speculation that Brown is preparing to challenge New Hampshire’s Democratic U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen, who is seeking re-election next year. Brown lost his Massachusetts Senate seat to Democrat Elizabeth Warren in 2012.
Zillow.com says Brown's house is for sale for $555,000. The Browns bought it for $307,000 in 1995. It is four bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms on three-quarters of an acre.
If he runs, Brown would be the Republican Party's top recruit to challenge Shaheen next year, and would transform the contest in a competitive race. The question, however, is how New Hampshire voters would respond to Brown's sudden move to their state after forging his political identity in Massachusetts.
