Brown on Warren: 'You Need a Record' to Run for President

Brown on Warren: 'You Need a Record' to Run for President
Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown took a shot at his former political rival, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, during a stop in Londonderry on Thursday night.

Brown, who was in town to address the Londonderry Republican Committee, was asked before the event for his take on  Warren's announcement on Wednesday that she won't run for president in 2016. Warren defeated Brown in the 2012 Massachusetts Senate race.

"Listen, you have to have a record first," Brown said. "I think you actually have to go and pass legislation and have experience to be president. I think that's critically important.

"That's a personal decision she made," he added. "I'm not sure... she didn't call me."

Asked about his own possible presidential aspirations, Brown replied, "I don't think I ever said I was thinking about running for president," but then added, "I don't think anything's off the table at this point."

Back in August,  the Boston Herald reported that Brown said he was looking at a possible 2016 presidential bid.
