Scott Brown: 'I'm Not a Tea Party Member'

One of the tea party’s biggest conundrums—Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass.—is taking the pressure off the movement that is currently torn about backing him in 2012. Appearing on Morning Joe and Fox and Friends this morning, Brown, the first candidate to enjoy tea party support in his 2010 special election, responded to threats of a primary challenge from the hard right upset with his votes outside party lines.

The Hill reports that Brown told MSNBC, “I welcome all challengers;” on Fox, he continued: “I'm a Republican from Massachusetts. I'm not a tea party member.”
