President Donald Trump on Thursday nominated former Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) as U.S. ambassador to New Zealand.
In a statement announcing Brown’s nomination, the White House noted his career in politics and law, as well as his work as a “political contributor” at Fox News.
“I’m sure you’ll make the people of MA proud,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) wrote in a tweet congratulating Brown on his nomination.”
Congrats @SenScottBrown on your nomination for New Zealand Ambassador! You have my support & I'm sure you'll make the people of MA proud.
