Former U.S. Senator Brown mulls White House run in Iowa

Posted

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Former U.S. Sen. Scott Brown could have presidential aspirations.

The former GOP senator from Massachusetts tells The Boston Herald (http://bit.ly/14rTO3o ) he’s exploring the possibility of a presidential bid in 2016. Brown says it’s "premature" to decide whether he’ll run but he’s curious if there’s any interest in him as a candidate.

Brown won a 2010 special election to replace the late Edward Kennedy but lost his re-election bid in November to Sen. Elizabeth Warren. He declined to run in another special election earlier this year after John Kerry vacated his seat to become secretary of state.

Brown is attending the Iowa State Fair, a frequent stop for possible Oval Office contenders. He’s also been mentioned as a possible candidate for Massachusetts governor and U.S. Senate in New Hampshire.
