MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Scott Brown is fighting to re-write political history as he tours New Hampshire.

But there are early signs that the state's famously feisty voters may be reluctant to embrace the recent Republican transplant. Brown joined New Hampshire's U.S. Senate race roughly a week ago.

He moved to the state 13 weeks ago.

Brown is trying to become the third person to serve more than one state in the Senate. The last one was elected more than two centuries ago.

His residency figures to play prominently in his quest to defeat Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen this fall.

Brown was born at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, but moved to Massachusetts as a toddler. He has owned a modest vacation home on the New Hampshire seacoast since 1993.
