I just want to say good luck, cause no one's counting on you

From what I've seen of NH, he should start driving a Subaru instead of his truck.

I'm not entirely sure there aren't some willing to help.

CSB: my buddy, who worked on a very successful campaign in 2012 as a field op, was tempted to toss his resume in for the Brown campaign (because why not? It's a campaign). One potential problem: The very successful campaign that he worked on was Elizabeth Warren's. Oops. I want him to put the resume in anyway, just to see if he gets a call.

Because the life of a porn star is so boring.

I thought Republicans hated carpetbaggers?

I really need to keep up on the narrative.

I always thought the Subaru thing was a Vermont thing. I'll be happy to not vote for this carpetbagger should he decide to run and win the primary.

NO! We don't want the entitled assholes up here.

The only thing Republicans hate more than a carpetbagger is a fleeting victory where the victor becomes a shining star in the party.

Almost immediately after it was apparent that Warren wouldn't make confirmation for the Consumer Protection Bureau it was being floated that she should run against Brown.  Brown's victory wasn't unexpected; the Dems in Massachusetts took a lousy candidate, ran a lousy campaign and earned that loss.

Seeing Brown back on the Hill is something the GOP would step over their collective dead Mothers to make happen.  The only problem is the perception of what it is going to take to get there.  Moving to New Hampshire is fairly bad; locals hate us Massachusetts residents.  If the GOP gets behind a run for him up there they will need to throw an incredible amount of money into it.

There is also another theory being floated too. Brown is running for president, not senate. That way he's already in the running from 2 years out to get the others out of the way, can run as a moderate and already has one of the first primary states as his "home" to spend the next year campaigning in.

It's a terrible thought, but also a possibility if he realizes that losing to Shaheen would be total political suicide.

The anti-Democrat sentiment required to get him anywhere would have to be nearly deafening although he would have the appeal of moderates.  Unfortunately, as of late, moderate Republicans have largely been drummed out at a rate never before seen.

....but I would welcome seeing him as cannon fodder during the debates.

Thanks, I prefer my loser friends in Cambridge.

Some years ago I was hired to do a web site for some guy running for the State Senate in Massachusetts as a Republican. As I recall, his slogan was "Competent, Conservative, Christian." I suggested that adding the Christian part wouldn't fly too well here in the People's Republic, and his campaign manager agreed with me. Anyway, I was at a performance at my wife's extremely expensive private school sitting next to my mother-in-law and she asked me how business was going. I said "Not so hot. I'm so desperate for work, I took a job from a Republican." The white-haired, elegantly-dressed woman in front of me turned around and glared.

Then just remember, they only hate things that are politically convenient at the time.

Carpet baggers?  Not when it's Scott Brown.
Political Lifers? Not when it's Paul Ryan.
Consumate Washington Politicians? Not when it's McConnell or Boehner.
Hollywood types? Not when it's Chuck Norris or Clint Eastwood.
Ivory Tower Academics? Not when it's Grover Norquist.
Draft Dodgers?  Not when it's G.W. Bush or Ted Nugent.
Elitists out of touch with the common man? Not when it's Mitt Romney.
Immigrants? Not when it's Cruz or Schwarzenegger.

Pretty much every single criticism that Republicans have used to attack a Democratic candidate on a national level in the last ten to fifteen years perfectly describes one of their own national level candidates that they all wholeheartedly endorse, and a slew of other conservatives in the media that did the criticizing.  It's utterly ridiculous.

So, I'm originally from NH, and all my family lives there. Shaheen is pretty popular with the moderates, and has lived in NH for all of her adult life. She's a three term governor and has had her name tossed around for national office by more than just cable news.

The other senator is a tea party moron who hasn't introduced a single bill in the 4 years she's been in office, and the NH population is getting rather tired of her.

All Brown will do is make this race more expensive for Shaheen. If he really wanted to win, he'd wait two years and primary Ayotte.

Good plan, that could get blown out the window if Lynch tries for that seat.

As an atheist in the Somerville area of the People's Republic, I would totally vote for a Christian candidate.  The issue is that I would require that person to be able to speak intelligently about their faith without accidentally denigrating people of other or no faith.  From this little bit, it doesn't sound like this State Senator was up for it.

I totally agree that working for Republicans deserves a glare though.   ;-)

There's nothing good about Scott Brown or what he does...

I lived in MA when he represented them.  Didn't vote for him and never understood what he stood for.  I moved to NH and now he follows me.  I still don't understand the excitement about this guy from anyone.  Not only is he running away to another state to try this, he isn't being honest to anyone.  Everytime he is asked, there is a different answer (and none are positive/negative).  You don't start an exploratory committee and hire staff if you ARE NOT RUNNING for some office.  Just man up and answer the damn questions.

Aside from that, how is it OK to lose re-election in one state, then be able to run in another state just cuz?  That would seem to be unethical at best and makes me really wonder why you are running.  You have no conviction for either constituents (the voting block and desires of MA residents are NOT THE SAME as NH residents).  These are huge red flags for me, anyway.

I lived in TX when Bush was governor. Didn't vote for him and never understood what he stood for. I still don't understand the excitement about this guy from anyone. He just wanted to share the gift of his genius with the whole world.  And stick 'em with the bill.
