Barney Frank to Retire!

Well! Well! According to breakingnews on Channel 7  and elsewhere – Congressman Barney Frank will NOT seek relection in 2012. This timing is strange! Who is next? Will Congressman Tierney take a hard look at his situation? Will long-termer Congressman Markey decide that his time has come? Will Congressman Capuano make way for a “minority” candidate? I don’t expect members Niki Tsongas, Jim McGovern, Richie Neal or Bill Keating to drop-out… that leaves Stephen Lynch. Hmmmm. Frank press conference scheduled for early afternoon. Politics in Massachusetts is never dull! Stay tuned.

    While Setti Warren might be a good Democratic candidate, anyone in the Commonwealth could run for the office.  Maybe Pangy, to end speculation re the Manager’s position.
