No news yet as to why, but all the news outlets are confirming that Barney Frank will announce that he is not running for reelection in 2012. He is going to hold a news conference later on today to give more details.
I must say that this has taken me by surprise. What do you think is his reasoning? Writing on the wall? Time with family? Medical issues? Tired of dealing with the children that run our country?
Once more details come out I'll pass them along.
