If you picked A) Run for governor of Massachusetts in your Scott Brown's Next Career Move Multiple Choice Quiz, we're sorry but that answer is incorrect. The former senator announced Tuesday on WBZ NewsRadio 1030 that he won't make a run for the seat opening up when Gov. Deval Patrick steps down in 2014. Brown explained in a Facebook post:

For the first time in 15 plus years, I have had a Summer to spend with my family. In addition, I have been fortunate to have private sector opportunities that I find fulfilling and exhilarating. These new opportunities have allowed me to grow personally and professionally. I want to continue with that process.

Your remaining options are: B) Run for the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts C) Run for the U.S. Senate in New Hampshire D) Run for president or E) Keep adding fuel to the political speculation while practicing law and collecting a hefty Fox News paycheck.
