Brown Hits GOP Holiday Party, Draws Protestors, Divulges Little
Scott Brown and his wife arrived in Nashua in his now-famous pickup truck.
The Browns were preceded by about a hundred protestors, mostly gun activists, who don’t like Brown's past support for a ban on assault weapons.
"It's clear why we are here: Scott Brown does not support New Hampshire values."
Media weren’t allowed inside the party, but on his way in the back door, Brown was asked if he plans to seek office here. He said he would "deal with that later," adding that his becoming a fulltime resident of Rye wasn’t driven by politics.
"Our moving up here is personal and I’m looking forward to spending a lot of time with family up here, particularly my mother, and that’s it.”
Brown’s visit to Nashua was his thirteenth appearance in New Hampshire since last spring.
Throughout Brown has repeatedly said a run for the Senate seat held by Jeanne Shaheen was “not off the table.”
A group called Ending Spending Inc. has run web ads to encourage Brown to run and TV ads attacking Shaheen.
Should Brown run, he’d join Jim Rubens, a former state senator, conservative activist Karen Testerman and perennial candidate Andy Martin in the GOP primary. Former US Senator Bob Smith has also said he plans to run.
