Scott Brown Decides Against Gubernatorial Run in MA

Former senator Scott Brown said late Wednesday he would not run for governor next year, ending months of uncertainty within the Republican Party and effectively sweeping a path to the nomination for 2010 gubernatorial nominee Charles D. Baker.

Brown, whose surprising 2010 Senate win leaves him as the only Republican to win statewide since 2002, said he hoped to pursue private-sector opportunities but did not foreclose on future bids for office.

“I’ve decided, with my wife’s blessing, that I will not be running for governor of Massachusetts in 2014,” Brown said on WBZ-Radio’s “Dan Rea Show.”
