Scott Brown Forgets Where He Is

Posted: Updated:

Former Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) seemed to forget what state he was in while speaking to reporters Thursday night, saying he's working to "raise awareness" of issues affecting "people here in Massachusett-- uh, in New Hampshire."

"What I've heard from the Republicans up here is they're thankful that I've been around for a year, helping them raise money, helping them raise awareness as to the issues that are affecting not only people here in Massachusett-- uh, in New Hampshire, but also in Massachusetts, obviously, in Maine," said Brown, who has been "warming to the idea" of a run for a U.S. Senate seat in New Hampshire. "I've been to Maine, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Connecticut, I've been all over the New England area, certainly, talking and helping people raise money."

Brown was in New Hampshire as the key speaker at a meeting of the Londonderry Republican Committee, according to Patch. When asked about a potential Senate run in New Hampshire, Brown reiterated that nothing's "off the table" and "there's no pressure" since the filing period doesn't close until June 13, 2014.

"I don't think anything's off the table at this point," Brown said. "I'm in no hurry, there's no timetable."

During the appearance, Brown took a hit at his former rival, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), saying he doubted she had the experience to run for president.

"Listen, you have to have a record first," Brown said, according to Patch. "I think you actually have to go and pass legislation and have experience to be president. I think that's critically important."

On Wednesday, Warren promised she would serve out her term, putting a damper on any 2016 presidential speculation. While in New Hampshire, Brown said he also wasn't considering running for president, but reiterated that nothing's off the table.

"I don't think I ever said I was thinking about running for president," Brown said. "I don't think anything's off the table at this point."
