Video: Brown rocks NH Cheap Trick show in tight flag shirt

Former senator strummed the guitar and joined in vocals during the Cheap Trick classic “Surrender.”

The former GOP Massachusetts senator, Scott P. Brown, who won a 2010 special election fill the Senate seat made vacant by the passing of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy Sr., joined the band Cheap Trick on stage Aug. 25 at The Casino, a Hampton Beach, N.H. venue.

Brown was defeated by Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

After his defeat, Brown allowed Bay State Republicans to believe he would run in the special election to replace John F. Kerry in the Senate after that Democrat became secretary of state–if they elected his former aide Kirsten Hughes the party chairwoman. But, after Hughes was elected he announced he would not run.

The speculation around Brown is now that he is spending more time in Iowa and New Hampshire, where his family goes back more than 150 years, he will run for president in 2016. If he does run, will he challenge Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination? Or run as a pro-abortion, anti-gun rights Republican, who voted with Democrats to raise taxes and the debt ceiling.
