Rep. Barney Frank endorsed Clinton Tuesday.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - Rep. Barney Frank, D-Massachusetts, endorsed Sen. Hillary Clinton for president Tuesday, and will serve as an economic adviser to the New York Democrat.
“I am particularly pleased by her commitment to reverse the economic policies that have created a situation in which as the country progresses economically, only a small number of Americans benefit,” Frank, who chairs the House Financial Services Committee, said in a statement released by the campaign.
The openly gay Massachusetts Democrat also praised Clinton’s positions on social issues.
“Based on my work with her on issues involving discrimination, I am convinced that Hillary Clinton is the best candidate best equipped to pass laws that will treat all Americans with dignity and equality no matter who they are or who they love,” said Frank.
