Skip to comments.Scott Brown - Running? (Pretty much)

Looks like he is running. Typing in 'Scott Brown for Senate' gives a #1 Google result entitled just that, and it links to this website
So, the race is on in New Hampshire, since Shaheen has been running scared from two dangerous polls that show her in deep trouble against Brown.
Personally, I don't like him, I don't trust him, and I probably wouldn't vote for him if I lived in NH... but Shaheen is just so damn unlikable. The woman looks like the kind of grandmother who'd give crappy presents. I admit it would be nice to see her concession speech.
My limited research on this topic suggests that such attempts (being a Senator or Representative from two different states) are generally unsuccessful.
Shaheen vs. Shaheen Lite.
I’ll write-in someone I can vote for in good conscience.
You’re absolutely right, but not unheard of. Whatever NH does won’t be great news, but one less vote for Reid will stick in his craw. At least he’d make Ayotte look good by comparison.
I thought carpet baggers went south, not north.
It’s rough in NH but this past time around people voted in Gov. Hassan and Rep. Shea-Porter. Brown is only marginally better than Shaheen but we’ve already got one of him in Sen Ayotte. We can’t even clean our own house any more.
Too many Massholes moved in.
I don't like Scott Brown at all. But what you said really is the bottom line. Constitutionally, these are very dangerous times. When it comes to the Senate, I'll take any GOPe (or GOP dem-light, or whatever) over the pure socialist dem alternative.

This is Shaheen....one of the group of senators that asked the IRS to “investigate” tea party groups.
The senators who approached the IRS to change the rules they did not go through congress to change the rules instead they gave congressional power to regulators.
They did not take it upon themselves to initiate legislation to clarify the rules (this issue came up in one of the first hearings in May)
They didnt want the rules applied equally to the left. And if there was new legislation (assuming it could pass) there was a bigger chance it could be applied equally than if they were regulations.
Shaheen faces scrutiny over IRS letters
Speaking on Fox News Tuesday, conservative powerbroker Karl Rove highlighted a letter sent by Sen. Max Baucus, D-Montana, to the director of the IRS in 2010 calling for further investigation of tax-exempt groups. Rove also discussed a letter sent to the IRS in 2012 by Shaheen and six other Democrats.
(The IRS was) doing what people on Capitol Hill wanted them to do, Rove said.
In the Feb. 16, 2012 letter, Shaheen and other lawmakers urged the IRS to develop new standards to evaluate the activities of so-called social welfare organizations.
Scott Brown running? Wow! Who cares.......
Alan Keyes and Elizabeth Warren went north.
...and so did Hillary Clinton.
It’s a strange mindset that, somehow, a truly conservative candidate can’t win a race for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire. It should be seen as very insulting to each and every conservative in New Hampshire!
NH was +6 for the Caliph in 2012.
It’s pretty far gone.
Doesn’t the ‘Live Free or Die’ have any TEA PARTY members??
Scott Brown is better on immigration than most women in Congress whether it is Ayotte, McMorris, Shaheen, Collins or Murkowski.
I hope Bob Smith wins.
I hope Scott Brown primaries Ayotte from the right in 2016.
Sadly, the state hasn't been conservative in years.
Howie Carr endorses Scott Brown. Scott Brown listens to Howie Carr and Ayotte listens to NPR.
...and New Yorkers. Both groups rule this sad milquetoast little state with an iron fist.
This is Shaheen....one of the group of senators that asked the IRS to investigate tea party groups.
Brown is a worthless RINO
I care a lot about who is in the senate. And - I am getting sick and tired of the purists who prefer to have Obama and people like Shaheen making decisions rather than electing the perfect conservative.
Uber-RINO Scott Brown is the best they got? And they had to import that??
Scott Brown is nowhere near conservative enough to be called a better alternative. He will be an immediate member of the RINO-Dem coalition
The reason I don't care if he runs is that he cannot win there. It's a non-event.
He’s not running in that state.
Lotsa people from Massachusetts have escaped to Vermont.
OK, New Hampshire. That might work.
He and Ayotte are RINOs. NH is a suburb of Boston.
Are they running for the US Senate, pretending to be conservative?
