President Donald Trump on Thursday announced that he plans to tap former state and U.S. Sen.
Brown represented MA in the US Senate from 2010 to 2013 after winning a special election to fill the seat held by the late Ted Kennedy, a Democrat. After serving in the Senate, he became a political commentator for Fox News. But the Globe reported in mid-February that the president was weighing Brown for the New Zealand post, and that Brown had told associates he believed the post was his.
WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump has announced plans to nominate former Massachusetts Sen.
If Brown is confirmed by the U.S. Senate, his newest title will be Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States of America to New Zealand, according to the White House. He previously met with Trump to discuss the job of veterans affairs secretary.

Panneerselvam had been petitioning against Sasikala since her meteoric rise to the top of the AIADMK. But a speech he made in Thanjavur in January 2017 spoilt his chances.
The U.S. Senate will need to confirm the nomination.
Brown lost his Senate seat to Elizabeth Warren during the 2012 election. He then moved to New Hampshire, and ran unsuccessfully against Democratic US Senator Jeanne Shaheen in 2014.
