Getting to Know the Massachusetts GOP Senate Hopefuls (VIDEO)

Posted March 12, 2013 at 4:20pm

Two of the Republican Senate hopefuls in Massachusetts are out with new campaign videos. Do yourself a favor and give them a look.

First up is Gabriel Gomez, who is out with a 2-minute introductory video. The spot opens with eight seconds of Gomez, whose parents immigrated to the United States from Colombia, speaking Spanish. The former Navy Seal with an MBA from Harvard Business School is shown in various settings talking about his background and values, as well as about Washington, D.C.’s problems. He bills himself as a “new kind of Republican.”

State Rep. Dan Winslow also has a new video. In it, he rails against “Washington insiders.” It is worth a look as well.

Gomez and Winslow face former U.S. Attorney Michael J. Sullivan in the GOP primary. The winner will be the underdog in the special election against either Rep. Edward J. Markey or Rep. Stephen F. Lynch, who are vying for the Democratic nod. The two Democrats launched the first ads of the Senate race on Tuesday. The primary is April 30.
