Brown hints at future in final Senate speech

WASHINGTON (WWLP) — Outgoing U.S Senator Scott Brown gave his last speech on the Senate floor Wednesday morning, thanking his staff, his colleagues, and his constituents.

View the entire speech here.

Brown, a Republican from Wrentham, was elected to the Senate in a 2010 special election to fill the remainder of the term of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy. Brown was defeated in November in his bid for a full term of his own, losing to Democrat Elizabeth Warren.

His remarks may have been his Senate farewell speech, but he hinted that this may not be the end of his political career.

"I want to say thank you to the people of Massachusetts to entrusting me to sit in the people's seat for the past three years.   I want to thank my colleagues who are here. I have some great friendships and opportunities to work with.  As I've said many times before, victory and defeat is temporary.  You know, depending on what happens and where we go, all of us, we may obviously meet again,” Brown said.

Brown has been mentioned as a possible candidate for Governor of Massachusetts in 2014. There has also been talk about the potential for Brown to return to the Senate fairly soon. If Senator John Kerry is chosen by President Obama as Secretary of State, another special election would be triggered.
