(CNN) – A liberal group is jumping on former Sen. Scott Brown, who's flirting with a Senate bid in New Hampshire, for making a slight political fumble Thursday night when he mixed up the New England state he was visiting.
"What I've heard from the Republicans up here is they're thankful that I've been around for a year, helping them raise money, helping them raise awareness as to the issues that are affecting not only people here in Massachusett–uh, in New Hampshire, but also in Massachusetts, obviously," the Republican said, quickly catching himself as he spoke to reporters in Londonderry, New Hampshire.

Brown moved on.
"I've been to Maine, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Connecticut, I've been all over the New England area, certainly, talking and helping people raise money," he said, when answering a reporter's question.
As a former Senator from Massachusetts–who campaigned there twice in three years–it's not too big of a surprise he would have a geographical slip of the tongue when touting his political credentials.
But if he's seeking office in the Granite State, potentially challenging incumbent Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen next year, his words will be closely monitored–and gaffes like that could be used as ammunition against him.
Video of his mix-up was sent out by American Bridge, a liberal opposition research group that tracks Republican candidates.
Brown, who owns a vacation home in New Hampshire, has been taking steps recently that further fuel suspicions he may run for the Senate. He wrote an opinion piece for FoxNews.com this week, highlighting what he describes as the negative effects of the federal health care law in New Hampshire, rather than in Massachusetts.
Last month, in another hint about a possible run for the Senate in New Hampshire, Brown dropped the 'MA' from his Twitter handle.
He will also serve as the keynote speaker at the New Hampshire GOP's holiday reception on Dec. 19.
