Brown's Planned Move to New Hampshire Spurs Talk of Senate Bid

Monday, 16 Dec 2013 02:20 PM

 

Scott Brown, the former Republican U.S. Senator from Massachusetts, has found a buyer for his Wrentham home and plans to move to New Hampshire, according to his boss, Andrew I. Glincher, managing partner and chief executive officer of Nixon Peabody LLP.

Brown, 54, 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 in an interview.

Brown didn’t immediately respond to an inquiry by e-mail.

The move will fuel speculation that Brown is preparing to challenge New Hampshire’s Democratic U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen, who is seeking re-election next year. Brown lost his Massachusetts Senate seat to Democrat Elizabeth Warren in 2012.

Brown owns a vacation home in New Hampshire and has made a number of public appearances in the state this fall. He is scheduled to headline the New Hampshire Republican State Committee’s annual holiday party on Dec. 19 in Nashua.

Earlier this year, Brown won clearance to spend money from his federal political action committee in the state.

Glincher said Brown hasn’t made up his mind about running for the Senate, although he thinks the former senator has ambitions beyond the law firm.

“Some people, when they start, you are already writing the press release for when they leave,” Glincher said.

Brown, in a 2010 special election, won the Massachusetts Senate seat held for almost half a century by Democratic Senator Edward M. Kennedy, who died in 2009.

After losing to Warren in November 2012, Brown considered running again in a special election to replace Senator John Kerry, who was appointed Secretary of State in February by President Barack Obama. Instead, Brown began working as a counsel at Nixon Peabody in March.

In recent days the New Hampshire Democratic Party has pressed Brown to release his client list at the law firm. Glincher said the information won’t be made public.

“The bottom line is that is unobtainable,” Glincher said. “Simply, it is not going to happen.”
