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.

Newton Mayor Setti Warren said he will not run for Frank’s seat.
Frank out? HUGE loss, not only for the commonwealth but for the whole country!
