Today Scott Brown texted to the Boston Herald that he would not run for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Secretary of State John Kerry, adding “U are the first to know.” Brown later released a statement saying “I have received a lot of encouragement from friends and supporters to become a candidate, and my competitive instincts were leading in the same direction.” Brown also criticized Congress for being too partisan, and said he will look for another way to “advance the causes and interests that matter most to me.” So, Bqhatevwr?
