    Is there a clearer case of a career politician just looking for any angle whatsoever into political power that Scott Brown?

    He becomes the senator of Massachusetts in 2010. Then resigns after realizing how unpopular he became, and that his chances for re-election were very slim. Now he moves to New Hampshire and is running for that up for grab's senate seat.

    Is this a clear case of Brown trying to weasel his way into power, where some adviser told him is vulnerable? Or is there some legit reason that explains the sudden flip-flop of residence? Because on the surface, this looks like nothing more than a pure political maneuver to me. Maybe I'm wrong though..

    He's to run against incumbent Senator Jeanne Shaheen in the 2014 New Hampshire mid-term. There can't be any chance for him to actually win this race, is there??

    It looks like he is down in the polls right now, but not by much. Seems like a strategic move, but I wouldn't necessarily say it is an unscrupulous move.

    MotherJones of all places just announced that Scott Brown lost. Will update once confirmed, but it looks like Shaheen will hold.

    Looks like multiple reports of that now. Looks like Shaheen won!

    This was one I was pretty confident on, but it's always nice to know that it's official.

    About the only bright spot! Briwn is as bad if not worse, as all the so call winners elsewhere. The ads band mailings by Brown were disgusting! He is a phoney as they come and to tell the truth I'm surprised he lost. NH is full of typical right wing, low info, conservative nut bags and survivalists. I hate living in this state! Fortunately, for me, I live in the most educated, liberal, Democratic town if the State
