WASHINGTON -- Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown on Sunday declined to comment about rumors that he may run for the U.S. Senate in New Hampshire in 2014, but Republican strategist Karl Rove appeared enthusiastic about the possibility of a Brown candidacy.
During an appearance on "Fox News Sunday," host Chris Wallace asked Brown whether he was in fact considering a bid to unseat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), who was first elected in 2008 after serving six years as the state's governor.
"Yeah, I'm not going to comment on that, obviously," Brown said. "I think it's important to continue to do my job here and challenge people to do things better."
"Nothing's off the table and nothing's on the table," Brown continued.
Fox hired Brown as a paid political commentator in February, after he lost the race to keep his Massachusetts seat to now-Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in November.
Fellow Fox News contributor Karl Rove chimed in, however, suggesting that Brown would qualify for a New Hampshire run.
"This guy is a ninth-generation New Hampshirian," Rove said, smiling broadly. "That's the dirty little secret. His mother lives there."
