Brown told the Boston Herald a published report saying he been erased from the list of potential lieutenant governor candidates because his daughter, Ayla, was competing on the Fox TV show "is the silliest story I have ever heard."
Brown is reported to be on the short list of running mates under consideration by Republican gubernatorial candidate Kerry Healey, the Herald said.
