(ABCNEWS.GO) — Sen. Scott Brown joked at a St. Patrick’s Day that Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum’s secret service detail may be the first time he’s ever “used protection.”

“I’m hopeful that all of you are actually following presidential politics. I see that both Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum now have secret service with them on the campaign trail and in Santorum’s case, I think it’s the first time he’s actually ever used protection, so yeah, yeah. Just saying,” Brown said.

Buzzfeed posted a video today of the Republican Massachusetts senator at the event.
