Barney Frank to Announce He is Not Running in 2012
Frank will announce in a press conference today that will not seek re-election.
CNN is reporting this morning that U.S. Rep. Barney Frank (D-4th) will not seek re-election in 2012.
The 16-term Democrat announced in February that he was planning to run in 2012. However, reports today say he will hold a press conference this afternoon in Newton to announce he will not run.
The Fourth District recently saw a bit of a shift after legislators mapped out the state's new congressional districts, giving more Worcester and Norfolk county towns to Frank including Milford and part of Bellingham.
