A prominent New Hampshire newspaper has had enough of the publicity surrounding former Massachusetts senator Scott Brown.
In an editorial, published Saturday, entitled "The blues for candidates: The ones not named Brown, that is," the New Hampshire Union Leader blasted the "endless" speculation about a potential run by Brown. The piece refers to the murmur over whether he will run for office that has been generated by stories -- like Brown renewing his contract as a Fox News contributor -- and said that the former senator needs to stop "[monopolizing] media attention on what is, so far, a non-candidacy."
"The guy can't stop at Dunkin' Donuts without triggering a story about what it means for his future intentions," the editorial read. It continued:
To Brown's credit, he's not exactly been leading people along with too many coquettish glances and winks. But neither has he put an end to the speculation by issuing a definitive, Shermanesque statement about his intentions. Out of fairness to the announced candidates and to the Republican Party, Brown is holding in stasis, that needs to happen at some point, and not just before the June filing deadline either.
