Scott Brown says he’s considering a presidential bid

Former Massachusetts senator Scott Brown told Iowa State Fair visitors on Sunday that he is “exploring a possible run” for president in 2016, according to reports.

According to WBZ Channel 4, Brown, a Republican, told a CBS affiliate that he is measuring interest in his “brand of politics.”

In 2010, Brown, a former state senator for the Bay State, won a special election for the Senate seat Ted Kennedy once held. Two years later, he lost that post to Elizabeth Warren, a Democrat.


Since then, he has hinted at a run for Massachusetts governor and New Hampshire senator.
