GOP urges former Sen. Scott Brown to run in N.H.: report

← return to Inside Politics

A new report says national Republicans are urging former Sen. Scott Brown to run for Senate once again, only this time in New Hampshire.

The chairman and vice chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, Sens. Jerry Moran of Kansas and Rob Portman of Ohio, are among those who want Mr. Brown to take on Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat, so she does not coast to re-election next year, the Boston Globe reported.

Massachusetts elected Mr. Brown to the Senate in 2010 following the death of Democratic Sen. Edward Kennedy. His election had significant ramifications for the passage of President Obama’s health care law, since he broke the Democrats filibuster-proof majority and limited their ability to make changes to the law.

He lost to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts Democrat, in 2012, but is eligible to run for a New Hampshire seat because he owns a home there.
