(CNN) – Scott Brown, the former Massachusetts senator who lost his re-election bid last year, won’t run for governor of the state, he wrote on his Facebook page Wednesday.
The Republican, who in addition to floating a gubernatorial bid has suggested he’s open to running for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire, where he owns a vacation home, told followers he wanted to continue growing “personally and professionally.”

Washington (CNN) - Ed Markey was sworn in Tuesday as the newest member of the U.S. Senate.
But Markey, 67, is anything but a rookie on Capitol Hill. The Democrat from Massachusetts was in his 20th term in the House of Representatives before winning election last month to the Senate.
(CNN) – This time, history didn't repeat itself.
Democratic Rep. Ed Markey Tuesday won a special U.S. Senate election in Massachusetts, topping Republican businessman and former Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez in an election marked by low voter turnout.
The contest was the second time in three years that Massachusetts voters headed to the polls in a special U.S. Senate election with national implications.FULL STORY

(CNN) - Less than half of Massachusetts voters say they have a lot of interest in this week's special U.S. Senate election.
According to a survey conducted by the Western New England University Polling Institute, 42% of registered voters in the Bay State say they have a lot of interest in Tuesday's contest between Democratic Rep. Ed Markey and Republican Gabriel Gomez, with three-in-ten saying they have some interest in the election, and 28% saying they have little or no interest.
(CNN) – Massachusetts U.S. Senate candidate Gabriel Gomez says he's not discouraged by polls that show him trailing his rival. And the Republican businessman and former Navy SEAL said Sunday an Election Day loss wouldn’t mean an end to his political career.
“I'm confident I'm going to win. But as a famous general once said in World War II, I shall return. And I know that a lot of people are very excited about our candidacy,” Gomez said on “Fox News Sunday.” Voters in Massachusetts will select a new U.S. senator Tuesday to serve out the term started by John Kerry, who left the Senate earlier this year to become secretary of state. If Gomez loses, he could run again for the seat in 2014.
(CNN) – Scott Brown will be back on the campaign trail Monday in Massachusetts - not for himself but for the fellow Bay State Republican who hopes to take a page out of the former senator's political playbook.
Brown was a little known state lawmaker in January 2010 when he upset Martha Coakley, the commonwealth's Democratic attorney general, in a special Senate election to fill the remainder of the term of longtime Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy, who died the previous summer.
(CNN) – The final debate showdown Tuesday between Massachusetts rivals Gabriel Gomez and Rep. Ed Markey was peppered with stinging attacks from the candidates, whose race for U.S. Senate culminates in one week.
The wide-ranging forum veered from each candidate’s record on job creation to which Senate hopeful is more entrenched in his party’s establishment. It also touched on last week’s White House decision to further intervene in Syria’s civil war, as well as recent disclosures about government surveillance programs.
(CNN) – A new poll indicates Democratic Rep. Ed Markey has slightly widened his advantage over Republican opponent Gabriel Gomez in the campaign for the June 25 special election for a U.S. Senate seat in Massachusetts.
