Brown is fighting to re-write political history as he tours New Hampshire. But there are early signs that the state's notoriously feisty voters may be reluctant to embrace the recent Republican transplant. Brown joined New Hampshire’s U.S. Senate race roughly a week ago. He moved to the state 13 weeks ago. Brown is trying to become the third person to serve more than one state in the Senate. The last one was elected more than two centuries ago.

Ex-Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown has made it official: He’s running for the US Senate in New Hampshire, WMUR-TV reported.

The paperwork was filed with the Federal Election Commission and has a March 21 date stamp.

However, Brown is apparently not quite ready to make the announcement himself. He told the WGIR radio program “New Hampshire Today with Jack Heath” that an official announcement about a run would come “sooner than later,” according to a podcast of the interview the station has posted on its website.

Brown’s candidacy, while now official, is no surprise. He’s been seen as planning a run for some time, including last month when he launched an exploratory committee for a Granite State run.
