Politics brings Romney back to New Hampshire


BOSTON (AP) — Mitt Romney is campaigning again in New Hampshire, although he insists he's not running for president a third time.

The former Republican presidential nominee is set to endorse Senate candidate Scott Brown on Wednesday. It's Romney's first New Hampshire appearance since Election Day 2012. And it comes as he pushes to re-emerge as a force in Republican politics.

The day is supposed to be focused on Brown's quest to defeat Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen this fall. But Romney's return to the state where he began and ended his last presidential campaign looms over the Senate endorsement.

The afternoon rally will be held at Scamman's Bittersweet Farm in Stratham, N.H. That's the same location where the former Massachusetts governor formally launched his last presidential campaign.
