National Republicans are urging former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown to run for a Senate seat once again, this time in New Hampshire.

Brown has not declared his candidacy in the Granite State, but the chairman and vice chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, Sens. Jerry Moran of Kansas and Rob Portman of Ohio, say Brown isn't just flirting with the idea of running against Sen. Jeanne Shaheen.

"I don’t think Scott Brown is just fooling around," Moran said, referring to the mounting signs that Brown plans to run.

Brown has done a lot of traveling to and from New Hampshire, where he owns a home. He put his Massachusetts home on the market and has played up his family's history in New Hampshire. He has shown up at GOP fundraisers, formed a political action committee in New Hampshire and spoken out against Shaheen and her support of Obama's health law.

The NRSC’s communications director, Brad Dayspring, said in an e-mail to The Boston Globe that running Brown against Shaheen "would give New Hampshire voters the choice they desperately seek to hold her accountable."

The Globe claims, "it could be risky for the national party to rely on a candidate who carefully built his reputation in Massachusetts," but the NRSC believes Republicans would embrace a Brown candidacy, especially since no other high-profile candidates are currently in the race.

So far, Jim Rubens, a former state senator, and Karen Testerman, a conservative activist, plan to seek the nomination in the state’s primary on Sept. 9.

Moran said the GOP is working to put its candidates in place by the end of the year and expects to hear about Brown's official intentions soon.
