Even former Sen. Scott Brown’s (R-MA) Fox News colleagues are convinced he’s making another run for political office.

Brown, who just renewed his contract as a Fox News contributor, sent an email to Politico Tuesday night that disputed host Greta Van Susteren’s tweet claiming he was running for a Senate seat in New Hampshire.

“I am not sure who she talked to, but it was not me,” he wrote in the email. “I know what the timelines are and when I need to make a decision, one way or the other. I will make my decisions in due course. Until I announce or file with the FEC, it is all just speculation.”

He sent another follow-up email to Politico reiterating that he had made no announcement.

The former senator had also spoken to the publication in person on Monday. At that time, he said that attack ads New Hampshire Democrats are running against him are actually prodding him to enter the race, although he has until the June filing deadline to make a decision.
