(NECN) - The candidates for the Fourth Congressional District in Massachusetts squared off on Broadside: The News with Jim Braude.
Representative Barney Frank, Democrat of Newton, is the incumbent, and has been re-elected continuously since first winning the seat in 1980.
Sean Bielat, a Republican of Brookline, is a businessman and a Major in the Marine Corps Reserve. He is making his first bid for elective office.
Bielat says Frank has put the country "on a perilous footing" for his involvement in the financial collapse.
Frank says that is not the truth, and he has been leading the fight to stop home ownership for low income people.
