Former President Bill Clinton is visiting Massachusetts to help the campaign of Rep. Barney Frank.
Sean Bielat, Frank’s Republican opponent, says Clinton’s visit scheduled for Sunday is a sign that the longtime congressman is vulnerable. Frank says he is doing what politicians running for office are expected to do, namely campaigning effectively. Clinton was to appear Sunday at a campaign rally in Taunton, a small city in the southern portion of the district where Republican Scott Brown tallied 57 percent of the vote in January’s special election to replace the late Sen. Edward Kennedy.
Clinton also is set to attend a fundraiser for Steve Grossman, former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, who is running for Massachusetts treasurer.
