Scott Brown rules out 2012 presidential bid

Friday, April 23, 2010

Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) on Friday ruled out a presidential run in 2012.

In an interview with NBC’s “Today” show, Brown ruled out running for president in 2012. Asked about Palin, he said, “Yeah, I think she’s qualified. Sure.” Will he support her if she decides to run for president? “Well, I’m going to support Gov. Romney and I’m going to see who’s out there in the field and then make my decision.”

As the NBC piece notes, Brown could be a key player in the coming weeks in Congress as Democrats seek GOP votes on financial regulation legislation and immigration. Brown, whose victory was celebrated by some in the Tea Party movement, voted for a Democratic jobs bills earlier this year. He’s up for re-election in 2012.

Brown joked that he’s been challenging President Obama to a round of basketball but hasn’t heard back. “Maybe when he needs a vote,” NBC reporter Jamie Gangel said. Brown shot back: “Maybe when he needs somebody who can shoot.”
