Scott Brown Confirms Move To New Hampshire

Former Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) released a statement Thursday confirming his move to New Hampshire from Massachusetts, WMUR reports.

According to WMUR, Brown called his return to the Granite State "strictly personal," despite talk that he may launch a run for U.S. Senate in the state.

"I am looking forward to being close to my mom as she gets older and needs assistance from my sister and me. I am also looking forward to being closer to my immediate and extended family," Brown said. "Once we get settled, we will do what many other people have done upon moving into New Hampshire. We will register to vote, get new licenses and enjoy the fact that there is no income or sales tax in New Hampshire."

Brown's wife, Gail Huff, told the Boston Herald the same, saying "we are living here now."

“If you look inside our Wrentham house, it’s empty,” Huff said.

In his statement, Brown did not comment on his future political plans, saying he has "nothing to announce."

"In conclusion, as long as we still root for the Patriots, Bruins, Celtics and Red Sox, I am a happy man."

Andrew I. Glincher, managing partner and chief executive officer at Brown’s employer Nixon Peabody LLP, told Bloomberg earlier this week Brown was in the process of selling his home in Wrentham, Massachusetts.
