Massachussetts Senator Scott Brown has not ruled out running for President in 2012 according to his daughter and former American Idol contestant Ayla Brown. In an interview on America Live with anchor Megyn Kelly yesterday, Ayla was asked whether her father had indicated any interest in running for president in light of a Gallup poll that ranked her father fourth as the 2012 GOP presidential favorite among Republican voters (ahead of Mike Huckabee and Newt Gingrich). Ayla responded, “He mentioned that a poll came out and that he was fourth in poll. But, he was just like, ‘I don’t think it’s for me right now. We have to see how the next couple of years goes first and do my job.’” [Italics added for emphasis.]
If Brown does indeed decide to run for President during his freshman term as a U.S. Senator, he would be following in the steps of another heartthrob pol, the current occupant of the White House, i.e., President Barack Obama.
