(WASHINGTON) — Scott Brown, the former Massachusetts senator who lost his seat to Elizabeth Warren, is poised to open an exploratory committee to run for the Senate again — but this time, in New Hampshire.
Three Republican officials tell ABC News that Brown is nearing a decision to jump into the New Hampshire Senate race to challenge Sen. Jeanne Shaheen.
The contest would instantly become one of the hottest races in the country and could give Republicans one more path to winning control of the Senate.
Brown could announce his plans as early as Friday, one source said. But two others said the timing was not immediately clear and could be next month.
Brown is scheduled to speak on Friday at the Northeast Republican Leadership Conference, a gathering of Republican politicians and activists, in Nashua, N.H.
