Larson Statement On Congressman Barney Frank
Washington, D.C. — House Democratic Caucus Chairman John B. Larson (CT) released the following statement today on the announcement by Congressman Barney Frank (MA) that he will not run for reelection next year:
“When you think about the contribution of Barney Frank, imagine Oscar Wilde and Clarence Darrow rolled up in a magnificent legislator endowed with quick wit and humor, and razor sharp intellect. What an enormous loss for Congress and the country.
“As both a friend and a colleague, I wish him and his family nothing but the best as they move on to new endeavors.”
