  • Days after "Klan" Controversy, Gabriel Gomez snubs Baker and Donates to Independent "McKormick"

    Just days after alluding that conservative activists are members of the Ku Klux Klan" former US Senate Candidate Gabriel Gomez (?-Massachusetts) donated $500, the maximum allowed by law, to independent progressive Jeffrey McCormick. McCormick, while running as an independent is a major contributor to Democrats nationally. As Red Mass Group previously reported, McCormick has a long history of supporting Democratic and progressive causes. Since 2007 McCormick has donated over $70,000 to federal candidates. Almost all of which has gone to Democrats. In 2007 McCormick Donated $2,250 to the Barack Obama Campaign. In 2009 McCormick Donated $500 to the Alan Khazei...
  • Hey GOP: How'd That Gomez Running as a Democrat-Lite Thing Work for Ya'?

    06/26/2013 11:22:02 AM PDT · by Lloyd Marcus · 31 replies ^ | 6/26/2013 | Lloyd Marcus
    RINO Republican Gabriel Gomez lost to Democrat Ed Markey in the special election to fill the Massachusetts U.S. Senate seat vacated by John Kerry. I say, “Thank God”. We can not allow Democrat-Lite RINO Republicans like Gomez to define the GOP. However, I have little hope that the stuck on fear, panic and stupid GOP will “get it”. Despite wasting tons of money backing Gomez who agrees with 90% of the Democrat agenda, he still lost. And yet, I guarantee the GOP will interpret the loss as evidence that our party needs to move further to the left. Why should...

    Longtime Democratic U.S. Rep. Edward Markey defeated Republican political newcomer Gabriel Gomez in a special election on Tuesday for the state's U.S. Senate seat long held by John Kerry, a race that failed to draw the attention that the state's 2010 special Senate election did.

    Massachusetts voters are heading to the polls to pick a new U.S. senator. Democratic U.S. Rep. Edward Markey and Republican Gabriel Gomez scrambled to energize supporters and mobilize get-out-the-vote efforts in the hours leading up to Tuesday’s special election to succeed John Kerry in the U.S. Senate. Both candidates made a series of campaign stops Monday, culminating with election eve rallies while their campaigns cranked up their all-important ground games designed to get as many of their voters to the polls as possible on a day when statewide turnout was expected to be light. …

    Republicans have talked about pursuing a different kind of candidate since what seems like forever. Heck, the national party even convened a special, secret task force just for that purpose late last year, after losing key demographic groups such as women and Hispanics. Yet, given exactly the kind of candidate they hire people to find out in the hinterlands, Republicans are oddly not engaged with helping him cross the finish line in a special election that would significantly stun Democrats. Gabriel Gomez is a Massachusetts Republican running to fill John Kerry's vacated U.S. Senate seat; the 47-year-old political newcomer is...

    Ask Democrat Ed Markey or Republican Gabriel Gomez about guns or ObamaCare or each other's qualifications to be the next US senator from Massachusestts, and out come the canned talking points and put-downs that anyone following the Senate race quickly wearies of. But what if you toss them some questions from off the beaten path? I put some nonstandard queries to the two nominees, hoping their answers might be illuminating – or at least unexpected.

  • GOP Poll: Massachusetts Senate Race a Statistical Tie

    A Republican polling firm has found that the Massachusetts special election for the U.S. Senate is in a dead heat. Democrat Ed Markey, the longtime congressman, leads Republican and first-time candidate Gabriel Gomez by just a point. According to McLaughlin and Associates, a firm that often works for Republican candidates, 45 percent of likely voters in Massachusetts support Markey, while 44 percent support Gomez and 11 percent remain undecided. The election is on June 25. Markey has long led Gomez in the polls, which is no surprise considering Massachusetts leans heavily Democratic. According to the Real Clear Politics average, which...

    Michael Sullivan is running for the Republican nomination for Senate in Massachusetts. In his latest mail flyer (above) he prominently shows a USMC AV-8B Harrier below statements about how strong he is on national defense, suggesting his own military service. The problem is that he has no military service, but is instead a career pol. I strongly believe this is a cynical and unacceptable attempt to portray himself as something he is not. A Republican opponent, Gabriel Gomez, IS a former Naval Aviator and SEAL who shows in his adds an E-2C Hawkeye catching the wire aboard the boat....

    Brother and sister patriots, I speak to you as family because I believe if we are to effectively push back in opposition to Obama and company's all-out-assault on our freedoms, liberty and culture, we (who love America as founded) must stand together as family. In a nut shell, Obama and Democrats/Progressives are out of control. On every issue from the environment to gun control they use the same tactic. Obama hits the airways and makes a totally mindless emotional pleas to low info voters. Arrogantly, Obama then expects to be given carte blanche to trample the Constitution at will....

    GOP U.S. Senate candidate Michael J. Sullivan defended his shifting message regarding gay marriage tonight as Democrats and even Republican rival Gabriel Gomez blasted him for flip-flopping on the hot-button issue. “This is no flip-flop, no flip-flop at all,” Sullivan told the Herald in a phone interview. The former U.S. Attorney had strongly declared his belief that marriage is between a man and a woman this morning. By the afternoon, however, he had sent out a statement saying he wants to overturn a federal ban that denies benefits to spouses who live in states that have legalized same-sex marriage. “Marriage...

    BOSTON (AP) — Republican Michael Sullivan was born one of seven children to a Boston Irish family, leaving college to take a job on the factory floor of a local razor company. But Sullivan was also determined to get ahead, eventually reaching the upper echelons of law enforcement, serving as district attorney, U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts, and director of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Along the way he would help investigate both the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and the failed attempt to blow up an airliner using shoe bombs. Now Sullivan, one of three Republican candidates...

    The launch of Ex-Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez’s Senate campaign officially sounded the bell on a crowded GOP slugfest — a primary battle that risks pushing the party to the right when the winner will need the heavily blue Bay State’s moderate middle. “When you have a crowded primary, the risk for a party is, the person who emerges tends to represent the extreme side of the party,” said Peter Ubertaccio of Stonehill College. “That can be a dilemma in a general election.” Gomez yesterday called himself a Catholic who respects both sides on abortion. He also said two people who...

    Republicans: Michael Sullivan. We have never seen a political candidate do so much publicly to alienate his base. Sullivan has repeatedly told the press he would vote to repeal DOMA. He told the Lowell Sun that he is "a very open-minded individual" regarding "gay marriage." He told MassResistance that he would not vote to reject a pro-abortion judge for the US Supreme Court, if that person were otherwise qualified. Daniel Winslow is pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage, and was the lone Republican supporter of the Transgender Rights and Hate Crimes bill. On the day of the DOMA hearing in the US Supreme...
  • Déjŕ vu in Massachusetts?

    Just three years after Scott Brown’s stunning upset in the 2010 Massachusetts special Senate election, the race to fill Secretary of State John Kerry’s old Senate seat is closer than expected. The GOP has managed to field three decent candidates, and Democrats appear prepared to give them an opening by nominating the very liberal Ed Markey, who is serving in his fifth decade in Congress. While Markey is a fundraising powerhouse, he is viewed favorably by only 39 percent of likely voters. That’s a troublingly low favorability rating for Markey, considering how long he’s been on the scene and how...

Deval Patrick Is it asking too much for a Republican candidate in Massachusetts to be, you know ... a Republican?

    Gabriel Gomez is the Eddie Haskell of the Mass. Republican Party. Only instead of sucking up to Mrs. Cleaver, in January the Republican candidate for the Senate was currying favor with Gov. Deval Patrick, begging for the interim appointment to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by John F. Kerry. Actually, given Gomez’s obsession with ethnicity, as shown in his obsequious missive, perhaps he should be referred to as the Eduardo Haskell of the state GOP. In case you haven’t yet read his letter to Gov. Mini-Me, Gomez makes it clear that he is a “Latino.” A Latino of “Latino...

    A gushing letter Republican U.S. Senate candidate Gabriel Gomez wrote to Gov. Deval Patrick asking to be appointed as interim senator — praising President Obama and conflicting with his own current campaign policy — drew howls of derision from his GOP rivals yesterday. “How can voters ever trust Gomez again when he tells Gov. Patrick one thing in a private letter, that he never thought would see the light of day, and then tells Republican primary voters something completely different on very important issues?” said state Rep. Dan Winslow’s spokesman, Charlie Pearce. Former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan’s campaign also blasted...

Ted Kennedy’s seat, Democratic leaders sought to clear the field early...

    My Conservative Campaign Committee is in Boston filming ads in support of Michael Sullivan for U.S. Senate. I consistently heard the same glowing reviews of Mike's service from voters – a strong trustworthy man of character and principles. In the words of one voter, “Mike has a knack for showing up and setting things right”. It is also clear that Sullivan has been doing the right things over a long period of time as “proven” and “tested” kept coming up in conversations about Mike. Another voter shared that he has followed Mike Sullivan's career over the years and has been...

    BOSTON — The three Republican candidates for US Senate are ratcheting up their rhetoric, with two of the candidates calling on GOP hopeful Michael Sullivan to reject ads launched by a group they describe as anti-gay. The radio and television ads by the Conservative Campaign Committee are aimed at helping Sullivan defeat Gabriel Gomez and Daniel Winslow in the Republican primary. Gomez said Sullivan should tell the group to take down their ads or "deliver these attacks himself." Winslow faulted Sullivan for saying he wasn't familiar with the group, which Winslow described as "anti-gay." The group's leader has described gay...
