Weld endorses Gomez


Former Massachusetts Governor one of the first prominent politicians ever to use the term "libertarian Republican" 

From Boston.com, "Gabriel Gomez in the Republican US Senate primary race":
Former governor William F. Weld today endorsed Republican Gabriel E. Gomez for Senate, saying the son of Colombian immigrants would bring a unique perspective to Washington. “After getting to know Gabriel and watching his campaign it is clear to me he is exactly the new American leader that this state needs in the Senate,” 
Weld said in a statement released by the Gomez campaign. “As a son of immigrants, a Navy SEAL and a successful businessman, Gabriel has a unique set of experiences and skills that will bring an outsider’s perspective to Washington, D.C.” 
Gomez, a newcomer to politics, is running for the Republican nomination for US Senate against two better-known candidates: former US attorney Michael J. Sullivan, and state Representative Daniel B. Winslow. The primary is April 30. 
Weld’s endorsement is symbolically significant because his socially moderate, fiscally conservative views helped the set the template for Massachusetts Republicans for the past two decades.
Editor's comment - Wouldn't it be utterly bizarre if we Republicans lost the South Carolina special congressional election, yet won the Massachusetts special senate election?  Politics; you gotta love it!

No, we deserve to lose South Carolina.

America does not deserve to have corrupt socialist douchebag machine politics Ed Markey as a US Senator from Massachusetts.

Tell me Jimmy, are you a Lynch or Markey supporter?

I don't live in Mass.

Eric Dondero said...

But if you did.

Markey or Lynch?

I don't know anything about them. I tend not to focus on elections that have nothing to do with me. Like what some random Rochester NY city councilman thinks of 'Radical Islam'.

Strange to think that a Senate seat changing hands would only effect people who lived in that state.

With a Weld endorsement Gomez should move up a few notches. He'll get my vote.
