(Newser) – Former Massachusetts senator Scott Brown is officially looking to head back to the Hill—this time representing New Hampshire. During a radio interview with New Hampshire's WGIR, Brown all but said he would run, Talk Radio News Service notes; News 9 has confirmed the news. Brown met with Senate Republicans yesterday, the AP reports, via TRNS. He'll run against Democratic Sen. Jean Shaheen.

The two are already sparring, as the Boston Globe reports. Following an awkward greeting at a Greek Independence Day celebration, each launched attacks against the other in the media. "I’m sure the people of New Hampshire will find out that he’s represented big oil and gas interests, that he’s represented Wall Street and voted with them consistently," Shaheen said. Brown said such attacks weren't "unexpected based on her history of attacking and trying to mislead people and direct them away from her voting record."
