Scott Brown is edging closer to ending the suspense about whether he’ll run for U.S. senator from New Hampshire next year. Brown, who served for three years as senator from Massachusetts, has sold his home there and is moving to the “Live Free or Die” state. Later this week, he will headline the New Hampshire GOP’s annual Christmas party.
This isn’t as strange as it might seem. The telegenic Brown has owned a vacation home in New Hampshire for decades. And although New Hampshire has been getting more and more blue in recent years, it’s still nowhere near as blue as Massachusetts.
So Brown definitely would have a chance. What’s more, New Hampshire is loaded with Massachusetts refugees who would probably be simpatico to Brown’s political relocation.
What’s next for New Hampshire: Romney as governor? After all, Mitt has owned a home on New Hampshire’s Lake Winnipesaukee since 1997.
