Barney Frank says he’s interested in being interim senator to replace John Kerry



Former Massachusetts Democratic congressman Barney Frank said Friday that he would like Gov. Deval L. Patrick (D) to appoint him to the U.S. Senate on an interim basis if Sen. John F. Kerry (D) is confirmed as secretary of state.

“I’ve told the governor that I would now like, frankly, to do that,” Frank said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

The recently retired congressman said legislators’ “fiscal cliff” deal makes the next few months a crucial economic period in which he wants to be involved.

Patrick will appoint a replacement for Kerry if he is confirmed, and a special election will decide who will serve the rest of his term. Frank said he’s not interested in running in the special election.
