Matt Brown's Political Future (posted April 17, 2003)
Secretary of State Matt Brown appears to be plotting his next
political move. The ambitious, new statewide office-holder has
been considering his future options. According to the Washington,
D.C. publication Roll Call, the secretary of state already has
consulted national party leaders. In a story about possible 2006
challengers to U.S. Senator Lincoln Chafee, that newspaper reported
on April 7, 2003 "Brown has already visited Washington,
D.C., to talk to party leaders about his political future."
While the article did not specify what office Brown was interested
in and what he was told, it is interesting that three months
into his first term, Brown is thinking about his next move. Could
there be a U.S. Senate run in his future? Only time will tell!
