And the Massachusetts Republican candidate outraises his opponent.

Is Barney Frank worried about whether he'll be reelected to the House? Maybe, but it's pretty certain that Frank's partner, James Ready, is rattled.
Here's a video of Ready heckling Bielat after a recent TV debate (hat tip Hot Air):
The Bielat campaign maintains that the photographing heckler is Ready, and the Republican candidate's spokeswoman, Lisa Barstow, said in an email that the video “speaks for itself.” The Frank campaign has not responded to email inquiries regarding the incident by THE WEEKLY STANDARD. You can watch the entire debate that preceded this incident here.
I write about this race and others in a piece for the magazine this week.
