Yet another Republican candidate for US Senate from MA, Gabriel Gomez is and isn’t in the Scott Brown mold. Both he and Brown are not really suited for the job, but both are OK looking and aw-shucks charming. Gomez doesn’t have any elected-office experience and Brown at least was a do-nothing state rep and state senator.
Gomez had upset promise as well. His background as Navy pilot, then SEAL, provided some glamour. His background in financial services at least implied he knew how to get rich, even if that has no relevance to the Senate.
Yet, he has thoroughly undermined himself in word and deed. Listen in as we discuss his campaign and make our surmises on how he came to be some self-destructive.
We agreed this was a winnable GOP run. Click below to hear why and how we think Gabariel blew it â€” the election, not a trumpet.
