Trump Nominates Scott Brown As US Ambassador To New Zealand


The White House announced today that Scott Brown was the President Donald Trump's pick to serve as the Ambassador to New Zealand.

The Republican state lawmaker in MA gained national attention in January 2010 with his victory in a special Senate election to serve the final three years of the late Sen. Brown had perviously sought the post of Secretary of Veterans Affairs, a job that went to David Shulkin instead. "He is going to obviously take my application, interest under consideration".

The role is at least the second in the administration for which Brown, formerly of Wrentham, has been considered. But it seems like this time, the island nation is excited to have someone with Brown's modeling background.

A version of the legislation passed anyway, and Brown later lost his seat in 2012 to current Sen. Scott Brown may soon be headed to other side of the world.

Brown was elected to the Senate in a 2010 special election following the death of Sen.

Brown is now a contributor to Fox News Channel.
