Barney Frank wants John Kerry's seat in the Senate

BOSTON — Newly retired Rep. Barney Frank revealed on Friday that he would like to serve as a temporary successor to Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry, the secretary of state nominee.

Frank told The Associated Press that he asked Gov. Deval Patrick to appoint him to serve as the state's interim senator until a special election is held to fill Kerry's seat.

Patrick confirmed Friday that he was considering Frank and believed he would make a "great interim senator," but added that he had talked to other people about the position as well.

"I'm very well suited to do it," Frank said. "You're not going to have a long period to get acquainted with things."

Frank first disclosed his conversation with the governor on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Friday, one day after his 32-year career in the House ended.

Under state law, the Democratic governor will be required to fill the seat with an interim appointment if the Senate confirms Kerry as secretary of state. The special election would then be scheduled between 145 days and 160 days — about five months — after Kerry's departure.
