Scott Brown to the rescue (again)? Former Massachusetts senator to announce New Hampshire run, hopes to return in November Republican landslide
The Maine-born Republican won a Massachusetts shocker in 2010 to replace the late Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy
He lost his seat two years later to far-left Democrat Elizabeth Warren
Now Brown has moved a few miles north and aims to return to the Senate
He's scheduled to speak late Saturday afternoon at a Nashua, N.H. political event, with GOP leaders calling his Senate candidacy 'a rumor'

Scott Brown wouldn't be the first person to serve in the U.S. Senate from more than one state. But Sen. James Shields' record of three states – Illinois, Minnesota, and Missouri – appears safe unless the Republican pays his realtor overtime.
Brown, who swept into Washington in 2010 as a surprise replacement for the recently deceased Democratic lion Ted Kennedy, moved to his coastal New Hampshire vacation home last year and registered to vote there. He's now poised to challenge first-term Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen in the Granite State.
Matt Mowers, executive director of the New Hampshire State Republican Committee, shrugged Thursday night and told MailOnline that 'it's a rumor right now.'
But two other sources have confirmed that Brown will use his speaking engagement at the Northeast Republican Leadership Conference in Nashua, N.H. as a launching pad.
