Fox News Channel has terminated former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown’s contributor contract following his announcement that he will form an exploratory committee with an eye toward running for U.S. Senate from New Hampshire as a Republican.
Reporters revealed on Thursday night that Brown was forming a committee, which is legally indistinct from declaring a candidacy, to challenge Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) in November.
“Scott Brown’s contributor agreement was officially terminated today once he notified Fox News of his intention to form an exploratory committee to run for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire,” read a statement from Fox’s Executive Vice President of Programming Bill Shine.
