Frank Backs Markey in Senate Bid

Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) tells WBUR that he will support Rep. Ed Markey's (D-MA) run for Sen. John Kerry's seat if Kerry is confirmed as secretary of state.

Frank is lobbying for the interim appointment to fill the seat before a special election is held.

Meanwhile, sources close to former Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) tell CNN he hasn't decided yet whether to make his own run.
