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.

Scott Brown drops 'MA' from Twitter handle

(CNN) – Former Republican Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts dropped the 'MA' from his Twitter handle on Wednesday, further stoking speculation that he's open to running for a U.S. Senate seat in New Hampshire.

Brown has met a number of times with Republicans in New Hampshire, where he owns a vacation home, and when asked by reporters earlier this year if he would consider running for office in the state, he said, "I don't think I'm done with politics, but I'm not going to rule out anything right now because I really haven't thought a heck of a lot about it."

Republican senator wants Cruz to stay out of the way in debt vote

Washington (CNN) - Sen. Kelly Ayotte said Wednesday she hopes her Republican colleague Sen. Ted Cruz doesn't try to hold up a Senate vote to end the government shutdown and raise the debt limit before Thursday's deadline to avoid default.

"It's up to him. I would hope he wouldn't," the New Hampshire Republican said on CNN's "New Day." "Senators can cause to you run out the clock, but what's he trying to gain at this point? I would hope that whatever comes forward, that we would allow a vote on it as soon as possible."

Amid 2016 speculation, Cruz takes grassroots pitch to New Hampshire

(CNN) - Sen. Ted Cruz wrapped up a week in the political spotlight headlining a political fundraiser Friday in New Hampshire, home to the traditional first primary contest in the race for the White House.

The Texas Republican, who is considered a possible contender for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, was the main attraction at a reception for the New Hampshire Republican Party in Dublin, where he told a receptive crowd that changes in Washington were only possible through mobilizing grassroots activists around issues like defunding President Barack Obama’s health care law.

On eve of New Hampshire visit, Cruz declines another political invite

Washington (CNN) – Sen. Ted Cruz will visit New Hampshire later this week to help the Republican Party raise money, but the Texas senator has declined an invitation to appear at an event this fall for a prominent Granite State social conservative organization.

Cornerstone Action had asked Cruz in May to speak at the organization's annual fundraising dinner, and praised him for his positions on social issues and education. But Cruz's office informed Cornerstone Tuesday morning the senator would not be able to make it because of a scheduling conflict.
