Barney Frank wants to fill upcoming Kerry vacancy

January 4, 2013, 9:41 AM

Former Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., who ended his 32-year career in Congress yesterday, isn't quite ready to leave Washington. The Democrat said this morning that he wants to temporarily fill Sen. John Kerry's Senate seat after Kerry is confirmed as President Obama's next secretary of state.

"A few weeks ago, in fact, I said I wasn't interested, which is kind of like you're about to graduate, and they said, 'You've got to go to summer school,'" Frank said. "That deal now means that February, March and April are going to be among the most important months in American financial ."

Frank said that he's already talked to Patrick about serving as the placeholder.

"I'm not going to be coy -- it's not anything I've ever been good at," he said. "I've told the governor that I would now like, frankly, to do that because I would like to be a part of that. It's only a three-month period; I wouldn't want to do anything more. I don't want to run again."
