Former Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) said Thursday night he did not believe he was "done with politics," and hinted at a possible Senate bid in New Hampshire, where he owns a vacation home.

"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,” Brown told reporters when asked about a possible New Hampshire bid, according to CNN.

Brown won his seat in a 2010 special election following the death of former Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.), edging Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley.

But at a Republican political event Thursday night, Brown emphasized that he had strong ties to the Granite State.

"New Hampshire is like a second home,” he said. “I was born at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, my mom and sister and family live here, spent summers here growing up, have a house here, I’ve been a taxpayer for 20 years. It’s not a far drive, either.”

Brown said a potential bid was "not something I’ve been spending any time really focusing on," but at the same time said voters in New Hampshire should do "the homework and finding out where and how [their senator] voted.”
