Former senator Scott Brown (R-Mass.) is selling his home in Massachusetts and moving to New Hampshire — perhaps the clearest sign yet that he's serious about running for Senate in the Granite State two years after losing his seat in its neighbor to the south.
Brown's move was first reported by Bloomberg.
Brown, 54, has found a buyer for his Wrentham home and is set to close on that deal this week, Andrew I. Glincher, managing partner and chief executive officer at Brown’s employer Nixon Peabody LLP, said in an interview. Brown will continue to work out of the law firm’s Boston office because he isn’t licensed to practice law in New Hampshire, Glincher said.
Brown didn’t respond to an e-mail inquiry.
Brown already owned a vacation home in New Hampshire, but moving out of his home state gives his flirtation with a Senate bid a little more heft. Brown is essentially putting his money — and his personal life — where his mouth is.
If he were to run, he would challenge Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), who to this point hasn't been a top GOP target.
The former senator is set to host the New Hampshire state GOP's holiday reception Thursday.
