Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown may be considering another run for the Senate, but in New Hampshire this time around.

The Republican lost his November re-election bid to Democrat Elizabeth Warren.

According to Politico, he's making at least five visits to New Hampshire in a one-month period. One was Saturday for a speech to a county GOP luncheon in Hanover and to attended the state’s Young Republicans convention.

Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen looks set to win re-election, but a Brown candidacy could shake things up. Both the National Republican Senatorial Committee and GOP strategist Karl Rove have been talking up his virtues.

Brown would have the advantage of being a known figure in New Hampshire, as most state residents get their news from Boston TV stations. He owns a vacation home in the Granite State, and his mother lives there.

“He’s almost like an adopted son,” New Hampshire Republican consultant Jamie Burnett told Politico. “He connects well with regular people who view him as one of us.”

Politico, however, puts the odds of Brown running at less than 50 percent because he would have to deal with the carpet-bagging accusation.

Brown would have to move to New Hampshire soon to establish his residency. But so far he's not talking much about the possibility, except to say, "Nothing is off the table and nothing is on the table."
