Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown says he won't be a candidate for Massachusetts governor next year.

The former Republican senator and state lawmaker spoke Wednesday night WBZ-AM's "NightSide With Dan Rea" radio program (http://cbsloc.al/13H3Oey ).

Brown had been mentioned as a possible GOP candidate. Democratic Gov. Deval Patrick is not seeking a third term.

Brown says he wants to fulfill his commitments to the law firm where he works, and to Fox News, where he is a paid commentator.

He told supporters at the Iowa State Fair on Sunday that he is "exploring a possible run" for president in 2016. That wasn't mentioned on Wednesday.

Brown won a 2010 special election to fill the unexpired Senate term of the late Edward Kennedy. He lost in 2012 to Democrat Elizabeth Warren.
