Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown (R) isn’t letting defeat get him down.
Since failing to win re-election against Elizabeth Warren in November, Brown’s future has been the subject of heavy speculation. With Sen. John Kerry (D-MA), the senior senator from Massachusetts, expected to be confirmed as secretary of state, Brown is well-positioned to run for the vacated seat. A recent poll found him topping every Democratic opponent in a hypothetical matchup, and another found Brown easily cruising by Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA). There’s also been talk of a gubernatorial run.
Brown, for his part, hasn’t given any indication of what his plans are. And while he hasn’t been meeting with any kings or queens lately, that we know of, Brown has become a sort of Twitter celebrity extraordinaire recently, even giving prolific Tweeter Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) a run for his money.
So, what’s Brown been up to?
He’s been going on runs with his wife:
