Scott Browm, the former US Senator from Wrentham, says he is taking a break and spending time with his family in an exclusive FOX-25 interview.
Scott Brown says he is recharging his batteries in a FOX-25 exclusive interview, aired Monday night. Part two of the interview will be airing tonight. After losing his US Senate seat to Elizabeth Warren in November, Brown decided not to run in the April special to fill the seat left by John Kerry's appointment as secretary of state. In the interview, Brown said it was too many elections in too short at time. He's, however, not commenting any future plans he has in politics. Instead, Brown says he is learning to play the guitar and learning to speak Spanish in between his work as a commentor on FOX News.

A decision of the expiring farm bill has been extended another year, preventing milk from doubling in price.
Milk prices won't be doubling after all, according to report on the Huffington Post.

Farm-state lawyers agreed to the extension Sunday as milk was expected to double in price to $7 a gallon if the bill was allowed to run out. Oklahoma Republican Representative Frank Lucus, the chairman of the House of Representatives' Agriculture Committee, was hoping the bi-partisian bill would be signed by President Barrack Obama by Jan. 1.
