Brown talks sports but avoids politics

Saturday January 26, 2013

BOSTON (AP) -- Online, former U.S. Sen. Scott Brown is quick to chat about sports, food and his family life.

Everything, it appears, except politics.

In recent posts on Twitter and Facebook, Brown gives updates on meals and workouts, cheers on the New England Patriots and the Boston Bruins and offers snapshots of home life.

About the only question Brown hasn't touched on is the one that political watchers across Massachusetts most want answered -- whether he'll run in a special election for U.S. Sen. John Kerry's seat if Kerry is confirmed as secretary of state.

Brown is coming off a grueling unsuccessful campaign for the seat he won during a 2010 special election. Despite losing to Democrat Elizabeth Warren, Brown is considered a front-runner for the special election.
