Scott Brown makes location flub

(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.
