Scott Brown Interested In Getting Back Into New Hampshire Politics

Printed from:

Former U.S. Senator Scott Brown appears as though he wants to re-enter the political sphere — in New Hampshire.

Brown, who served as a U.S. senator from Massachusetts from 2010 to 2013, resigned from his post as dean and president of New England Law School in Boston. It was a position he held for seven months. Now, he’s interested in getting back into politics.

“Enjoyed my time as Dean, loving life as a musician @sbrowndiplomats , but now it’s time to get back in the political arena and help re-build our party #nhpolitics,” he tweeted on Wednesday this week.

Brown did not elaborate on what he sees as his role in the Republican Party. But he’s a possible candidate for governor of New Hampshire if the current governor, Chris Sununu, a fellow Republican, runs for U.S. Senate in 2022. Alternatively, Brown could run for U.S. Senate against incumbent Maggie Hassan, a Democrat, if Sununu doesn’t.

Brown has been a resident of New Hampshire since 2014. That’s the year he ran for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire and lost to incumbent U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-New Hampshire), 51.5 percent to 48.2 percent. Brown was labeled a carpetbagger in the race, which cost him support.

Brown’s most recent political endeavor was serving as former President Donald Trump’s ambassador to New Zealand for four years.

Brown is best known for his upset victory in a U.S. Senate special election in January 2010 following the death of U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy (D-Massachusetts). Brown narrowly defeated former Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley, 51.9 percent to 47.1 percent.

The former resident of Wrentham, Massachusetts served in the Massachusetts Legislature from 1999 to 2010. First, he was a state representative from 1999 to 2005 in the Ninth Norfolk District, then he served as the state senator from the Norfolk, Bristol and Middlesex District.

He began his political career as an elected member of the town of Wrentham’s board of assessors, before becoming a selectman in that town.
