BOSTON — Jewish Rep. Barney Frank, a favorite target of conservatives, is going back to Washington for a 16th term after beating back one of the toughest re-election campaigns of his nearly three decades in the House of Representatives on Tuesday.

Voters in Massachusetts rejected a Republican challenge from political newcomer Sean Bielat.Frank, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, had emerged as one of Congress' most powerful Democrats while shepherding both the Wall Street overhaul bill and one of the nation's most sweeping financial regulatory bills through the House.
