WASHINGTON (AP) — Scott Brown is dropping in on the Republican Senate caucus that he once belonged to and that he hopes to join again.

The former senator from Massachusetts lunched with his old GOP colleagues Tuesday at their weekly gathering in the Capitol.

Brown is running for the Senate from his newly adopted state of New Hampshire. He hopes to oust Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen this fall.

Brown was the upset winner in a 2010 Massachusetts special election to succeed Democrat Ted Kennedy. Kennedy died after nearly 47 years in the Senate.

But Brown lost the 2012 Senate election in Massachusetts to Democrat Elizabeth Warren.

Republicans hope Brown can help them gain the six Senate seats they need this November to control the chamber.
