Ex-Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown has made it official: He’s running for the US Senate in New Hampshire, WMUR-TV reported.
News 9 had confirmed (Brown) is officially in the race for a U.S. Senate seat.
Brown filed the official paperwork last month, according to Fox 25 News.
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.
