Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) is openly criticizing Wisconsin Democrats for the state recall, following Tuesday's victory by Republican Gov. Scott Walker.
"I think the people on the Democratic side made a big mistake and the funding thing was a big deal," Frank told The Hill, referring to Walker's large fundraising advantage.
"My side picked a fight they shouldn't have picked. The recall was upsetting to people, the rerun of the election with [Democratic Milwaukee Mayor] Tom Barrett — it's not a fight I would have picked."
Frank is retiring from Congress this November, after 32 years.
