Scott Brown: A future etched in granite?

For those who regard New Hampshire as a refuge for over-taxed, disaffected Bay Staters, consider this: Former Senator Scott Brown might be open to another run for the US Senate — from New Hampshire. “I’m not going to rule out anything right now,” Brown said in Nashua recently. But he did point out that he owns a home in the Granite State, and has been a taxpayer there for 20 years.

New Hampshire Democrats quickly put out a fund-raising pitch urging supporters to “tell Scott Brown to go back to Massachusetts,” and political scientist Andrew Smith, who heads the University of New Hampshire Survey Center, went so far as to tell the Globe that Brown’s Massachusetts roots would be “the biggest hurdle” to a successful run in New Hampshire.
