Barney Frank Gone ?

Well rumors are swirling that Barney Frank has decided to retire. My thoughts are ....YIPPIE

UPDATE....It just came across my local news media I guess that moves it from rumor to almost fact

Frank Will Not Run Again

Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) will not run for re-election for a 17th term. He'll hold a press conference at 1 pm ET to discuss his decision.

A close adviser tells the Boston Globe that "the new district in which Frank would have had to run next year was a major factor in his decision. While it retained his Newton stronghold, it was revised to encompass more conservative towns while Frank also lost New Bedford, a blue-collar city where had invested a lot of time and become a leading figure in the region's fisheries debate."

Roll Call: "Some possible candidates for his newly redrawn seat include City Year co-founder Alan Khazei, who recently dropped his Senate primary bid, and former Chairwoman of the Brookline Board of Selectman Deborah Goldberg.
