Matt Canter, Deputy Executive Director at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, issued the following statement on the US Senate race in Massachusetts:
“Ed Markey knows how to strengthen the middle class and create an economy that works for everyone – not just the privileged few. He will be a leader in the Senate on the issues that matter most to the people of Massachusetts.
“A small group of Republican voters in Massachusetts have decided that Gabriel Gomez, a former spokesman for a Super PAC that attacked President Obama over the killing of Osama bin Laden, best represents their extreme right wing views, putting him way outside the mainstream for the vast majority of Massachusetts voters. The fact is that Gomez opposes a woman’s right to choose, sides with the big banks over consumers, and would support a Republican agenda that would cut Medicare and Social Security. Gomez has built his enormous wealth on the backs of hardworking middle class families and he is out of touch with Massachusetts.”
