Scott Brown Not Running for Vacated Senate Seat

Might run for governor?


Scott Brown, who surprised the political world with his upset victory in the 2010 special election, announced Friday afternoon that he will not enter the special election to replace John F. Kerry, he said in a text to the Boston Herald Friday.

Brown's decision leaves the Republican Party scrambling to find a viable candidate for the June 25 election. To make the ballot, candidates must gather 10,000 certified signatures in four weeks.
