Gomez Introduces Himself To Mass. Voters In First Ad

Republican Massachusetts Senate candidate Gabriel Gomez on Sunday released his first web ad since his primary night victory last week, a positive spot dotted with images of Americana that highlights his newcomer status.

“If you’re looking for a rigid partisan, I’m not your guy,” Gomez says in the ad, which captures a portion of his primary victory speech. “If you’re looking for an experienced, slick-talking politician, I’m definitely not your guy.”

Gomez, a former Navy SEAL, trails Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA) in deep blue Massachusetts by a surprisingly slim margin, 44 percent to 40 percent, according to a new survey released Friday from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling.
