A Democratic Super PAC is airing a pricey $150,000 campaign commercial against former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown -- even though he hasn't announced he's considering running for political office in his native New Hampshire, the Huffington Post reported Wednesday.

The Senate majority PAC launched a pre-emptive strike against Brown, who moved with his family to the Granite State, where he grew up, after he lost his Massachusetts seat to Democrat Elizabeth Warren in 2012.

The 30-second advertisement begins, "When Scott Brown was the senator from Massachusetts, he delivered for Wall Street, saving big banks $19 billion in taxes."

The ad, which will run for 10 days, also attacks Brown for being a friend of Wall Street and accepting campaign contributions from the financial industry when he was in the Senate.

The ad continues, "Now he's shopping around for a Senate seat in New Hampshire. Really? That's good for Wall Street and great for Scott Brown, but not for New Hampshire."

Brown, who is currently serving as an adviser in a law firm's Boston office, told Politico the ad is "typical B.S. Not even a candidate, and they are already in attack mode. Is that even legal?"

Story continues below video.



New Hampshire Republican Party Chairwoman Jennifer Horn said there's "no question" Brown would be welcome to run for a U.S. Senate seat.

Politico also reported that Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen is conducting an internal poll this week to gauge how susceptible she would be if Brown were to run against her.
