U.S. Rep. Barney Frank, D-Newton, has always found ways to command the national spotlight. But after the housing and banking meltdown, and the legislation that followed, the chairman of the Financial Services Committee was everywhere.

Frank carried the reform legislation through the House, and now that it has also passed in the Senate, he has been selected to chair the joint committee to produce a final bill.

All the while, Frank has a different fight on the horizon: re-election.

What questions do you have for Frank? What are you hoping to see this election season? The congressman joins us live in WBUR's Studio 3.

This program aired on June 7, 2010.
