Senator Brown Just Plans on Finishing His Job

Senator Scott Brown passes on discussing potential runs for office at a press conference Tuesday.


Could he be Senator Scott Brown again in 2013?

With rumors surrounding the possiblitiy of Massachusetts Senator John Kerry being appointed as secretary of defense in the Obama administration, a different senator could be in the state's future.

Brown, who was elected in a special election to replace Ted Kennedy, said he wasn't talking about another run at the office Tuesday during his first press conference since he lost in last week's election to Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren.

“First of all, it’s speculation," said Brown in an article in The Boston Globe. "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. We’ll see what happens. I’m not even thinking about it right now.”

Brown has also been rumored to run for Massachusetts governor, but the only thing he was committing to was working as a senator until his time is up.

Governor Deval Patrick had been rumored to possibly become U.S. attorney general, but Wednesday afternoon, he said he wasn't interested in the job.

Brown, a fomer state senator, wouldn't comment about a possible run for governor.

“I have a job to do right now," he said. "And there is not an opening right now for governor, nor is there an opening for senator. But there is an opening for a dad and husband.

"Life doesn’t end when you lose an election.”

What a shame. A reasonable moderate in congress is replaced by a loony nutjob. At least the unions and those that don't work are happy.
