“In 2010, Republicans made an all-out push to stem the tide of Democratic progress in Massachusetts and thanks to our better ideas, better candidates and a massive grassroots campaign that stretched from one corner of the Commonwealth to the other, that push fell short,” Walsh said in the statement. “Next year, we will mount an even bigger grassroots effort to build on the gains we made in 2010 and continue to move Massachusetts forward.”

Frank, who has been known for his acerbic wit since he came to Congress in 1981, took a dig at former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R) in discussing what he would do after he left Capitol Hill.

“Let me be very clear: I will neither be a lobbyist or an historian,” he said.
