CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Former Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown has launched a political action committee in New Hampshire.

Brown has been mentioned as a possible candidate here or in Massachusetts but hasn’t said he’ll run for office. After winning the Massachusetts Senate seat held by Edward M. Kennedy until his death, Brown lost in 2012 to Elizabeth Warren.

“The Peoples Seat PAC” allows Brown to donate money to statewide candidates.

Brown recently put his Massachusetts home on the market. He has a vacation home in Rye, N.H., and has visited the state often to raise money for Republicans.

A call to the PAC was not immediately returned Tuesday.

In a fundraising letter Tuesday, New Hampshire’s Democratic U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen said Brown had sent a signal that he’s “ready to run” against her.
