U.S. Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., a fiery progressive, will appear in Hawaii in April for U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono’s Democratic primary campaign for U.S. Senate.
Frank, who is not seeking another term, is a leading liberal voice nationally.
Both Frank and Hirono are members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Frank is expected in the islands on April 13.
Hirono is facing former congressman Ed Case in the Democratic primary. Former Gov. Linda Lingle is the top Republican candidate.
