Former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown (R) will on Thursday formally launch his comeback campaign to represent neighboring New Hampshire in Congress' upper chamber.

Brown's campaign told The Washington Post it was an "administrative oversight," saying that the mistake would be corrected within the week.
