WASHINGTON - MAY 06: Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) holds a news briefing about his proposed “Terrorist Expatriation Act” at the U.S. Captiol May 6, 2010 in Washington, DC. Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Brown said the new legislation would bring existing federal law up to date by adding another item to the list of acts for which a U.S. citizen would lose nationality: providing material support or resources to the foreign terrorist organization, as designated by the secretary of state, or actively engaging in hostilities against the United States or its allies.

Though it’s widely assumed that Scott Brown will attempt to fight his way back into the Senate this summer in the special election for John Kerry’s soon-to-be vacant seat, he might follow in Mitt Romney’s footsteps and run for governor of Massachusetts. If Brown wins the Senate race in a few months, he’ll still have to run again next year, and there doesn’t seem to be a strong contender to succeed Deval Patrick in 2014. Sources tell Politico that Brown still hasn’t made up his mind, and presumably he could remain in his current gig as solely “a dad and a husband” — though since his family had him cleaning out the garage this weekend, it doesn’t seem likely.
