Brown says another run for office is premature

WASHINGTON -- Senator Scott Brown, in his first news conference since last week’s reelection loss, said it was premature for him to consider another political run, either for governor or the US Senate, even as speculation intensifies that his fellow Massachusetts senator, John Kerry, could ascend to a Cabinet post in a second Obama administration.

“First of all, it’s speculation. There is no vacancy that I’m aware of, and my biggest job right now is to make sure there is a smooth transition from my office to the senator-elect’s office,” he said. “We’ll see what happens. I’m not even thinking about it right now.”
