Oops: Scott Brown Forgets To List Party Affiliation On Campaign Doc


Former Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) seems to have forgotten to fill out his party affiliation for his Senate exploratory committee to run in New Hampshire.

The little gray box for party affiliation was left blank on Brown’s statement of organization for a campaign exploratory committee, according to The Washington Post.

Brown received a letter on Friday reminding him that he needed to list which party he planned to identify with as he gears up to challenge Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH). The FEC wrote to Brown:

Your Statement of Organization (FEC Form 1) reports information about a Principal Campaign Committee; however, your filing fails to disclose information about the candidate. Commission regulations require that the Statement of Organization disclose the name of the candidate, the office sought (including State and Congressional district, when applicable), and party affiliation of the candidate. (11 CFR 102.2(a)(v)) Please amend your Statement of Organization to include the party affiliation.

Brown’s campaign told the Post that the mistake was an “administrative oversight” that will be fixed when he formally announces his candidacy on Thursday. Brown will run as a Republican.
