WASHINGTON — After months of speculation, former U.S. Senator Scott Brown will officially enter the race on the platform of replacing ObamaCare.
Reuters reported that Brown, the one-time GOP U.S. Senator in Massachusetts, will run against incumbent Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat. He surprised the Massachusetts state Democratic party and beat their candidate to succeed the late Ted Kennedy in 2010, but lost his seat to Elizabeth Warren in 2012.
He had previously worked as a contributor on Fox News after losing his re-election race. But now, he will focus on ObamaCare.
In an e-mail to supporters, Brown told supporters that his tour of the state convinced him that New Hampshire residents “want a health care system that works for New Hampshire.”
The Democrats hold a 55-43 seat majority in the Senate, while the Republicans have a large majority in Congress.
