Former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown is moving to New Hampshire for unspecified reasons, but, haha come on, it's pretty clear that he's going to run for Senate again. According to his employer, law firm Nixon Peabody LLP, Brown has already found a buyer for his house in Wrentham.
Though Brown is moving northward, he'll continue to work out of his Mass. office, since he's not licensed to practice law in New Hampshire. He currently owns a vacation home there.
While Brown did not comment to Bloomberg News, he is scheduled to make an appearance at a Republican party holiday function in the state this week, in addition to a slew of ones already made last fall. Brown's political action committee won clearance to spend money in the state as well.
Brown is probably going to take on Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen, who was elected in 2008 and was governor of the state before that. One super PAC (not Brown's) have already begun running anti-Shaheen ads in which she echoed President Obama's "you can keep your insurance plan" promise. The Super PAC's president told Politico that he would like to see Brown enter the race.
