On Wednesday, Scott Brown has thrown his hat into the race to unseat New Hampshire U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D).
Scott Brown — a Republican who served an abbreviated term as a U.S. Senator from Massachusetts — told a New Hampshire radio station that he is running for Shaheen’s senate seat and will make an official announcement next week. Earlier this month, Scott Brown had launched an exploratory committee, which many saw as confirmation of his intent to challenge Shaheen, the Washington Post notes.
In 2010, Scott Brown defeated Massachusetts attorney general Martha Coakley in a special election to serve out the remainder of late Senator Ted Kennedy’s term. However, Scott Brown lost his bid to win a full term when he was defeated by Elizabeth Warren in 2012.
Republicans view Shaheen as vulnerable this year and have targeted her seat as part of the GOP’s campaign to capture control of the U.S. Senate.
