Fox News Cancels Contract With Scott Brown (For Real This Time)


The statement came a day after news broke that Brown would form an exploratory committee to run in the Republican primary to face Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH). The network has routinely suspended contracts for candidates once they officially jump into a race.

Brown had gone back and forth with his contract in the past before he decided to run. When his contract with Fox last ended speculation started that he had finally decided to run for Senate in New Hampshire. But then the contract was renewed soon after. This time, since Brown has announced the formation of an exploratory committee to run for Senate, he seems much more serious.
