MANCHESTER, N.H (WBZ NewsRadio) — Gail Huff Brown, former Boston broadcast journalist and wife of former Ambassador Scott Brown, announced her candidacy for a U.S. House seat in New Hampshire on Tuesday morning.
Huff Brown is running for the First Congressional District seat as a Republican, and made the announcement in a campaign ad.
She filed for declaration of candidacy with the Federal Elections Commission on Sept. 9th.
Five other Republicans already declared their candidacies for the seat and Huff Brown will have to compete against them for the GOP Nomination next fall.
The incumbent District 1 Congressman, Chris Pappas, has filed papers for a third term but has not denied the possibility of switching for a state level position such as governor. Huff Brown blasted Pappas in the ad, saying that Pappas “doesn’t represent our Granite State values.”
Huff Brown has declined to divulge how much money she's raised in her campaign so far.
In her announcement video she said she worries about the current state of immigration, foreign policy, and “cancel culture."
