Boston Globe and other sources reporting that, right about now, Scott Brown will release "a statement."

Typically one would not announce his Senate candidacy with a statement instead of a live event, and the reports are that he has decided not to run, despite pressure from the Massachusetts GOP and the NRSC.

Many observers have speculated he'd rather run for the open Governor's seat in 2014 rather than have a tough Senate race this year and another one when the term expires next year. If so, it's great news for the Democrats. Brown is the one Massachusetts Republican with a good shot at winning this seat.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman
