BREAKING: Congressman Barney Frank will not run for re-election
Later today, Congressman Barney Frank will announce he is not running for re-election. Frank, the 16-term Congressman from Massachusetts, became the first openly LGBT member of congress when he came out publicly in 1987. He is the former chair of the powerful House Financial Services Committee, although perhaps he is better known for his quips.
Watch his press conference at 1:00pm here.
