Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown officially launched a U.S. Senate bid in New Hampshire Friday, saying he wants to “stop complaining and get involved again” in Washington.

Brown announced the bid at the first day of the two-day Northeast Republican Leadership Conference Friday, which features prospective presidential candidates and other GOP heavyweights looking to court New Hampshire voters and put their stamp on party affairs. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, a 2012 presidential candidate, and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal headlined Friday’s speaking program.

Brown said his wife told him he should run for the U.S. Senate in New Hampshire if he really wants to make a difference.

“Honey, you are right,” he said. “I’m going to stop complaining and get involved again.”

Brown’s announcement of a Senate campaign against New Hampshire’s first-term Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen may overshadow the weekend event in Nashua.

Brown has begun seeking campaign staff while aggressively courting New Hampshire elected officials and key GOP activists in recent weeks. At the same time, his camp has begun offering paid positions to Republican operatives for a prospective New Hampshire campaign.

The longtime Massachusetts resident recently relocated to his seacoast New Hampshire vacation home. An exploratory committee would officially allow him to begin raising money and hiring staff.
