Scott Brown Says He is "Curious" About a Possible 2016 Run

Former Massachusetts senator the latest Republican to consider nomination bid


Former Sen. Scott Brown is considering a run for president in 2016, he told a Massachusetts paper Sunday while at the Iowa State Fair.

"I want to get an indication of whether there's even an interest, in Massachusetts and throughout the country, if there's room for a bipartisan problem solver," Brown told the Boston Herald from the early-caucus state. "It's 2013, I think it's premature, but I am curious. There's a lot of good name recognition in the Dakotas and here — that's pretty good."
