Trump nominating Scott Brown for foreign ambassador role

On Thursday, President Trump announced he will nominate former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown as U.S. ambassador to New Zealand.

According to The Hill, initial reports surfaced about his consideration as U.S. ambassador in February while he was also rumored to be a contender for the secretary of Veterans Affairs, which was ultimately granted to David Shulkin.

Brown, who endorsed Trump early in his presidential campaign, was elected to the Senate in a 2010 special election to fill Ted Kennedy’s Massachusetts Senate seat following his death.

Brown later lost his seat in 2012 to current Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who congratulated him on his nomination via Twitter Thursday morning:

The Former U.S. Senator’s nomination will require confirmation by the Senate.
