Are you tired of the partisan bickering and gridlock in Washington, D.C.? Are you sick of career politicians who view elections as a bloodsport?
Independent voters have a voice in the U.S. Senate primary on Tuesday, April 30. So whether you’re a moderate or a conservative or somewhere in-between, you owe it to yourself to learn something about Republicans Mike Sullivan and Gabriel Gomez.
Mike Sullivan is a district attorney who is well-trained in law and politics. During a time when many Massachusetts residents saw their paychecks shrink, Sullivan worked hard to get himself a 24 percent raise. With out-of-state backing, he’s also raised campaign contributions in Reno, Nevada. Sullivan claims that he’s the real "Republican" in the race, and sees a willingness to work with Democrats as a weakness.
Sadly, Sullivan’s desire to win at all costs has tainted his judgment. In a recent campaign mailing -- sent the day after the Boston Marathon bombing -- Sullivan released the home address, email address, and cell phone number of Gabriel Gomez. Sworn to protect and defend, Sullivan also posted the names, ages, and address of his opponent’s children on the Internet.
Gabriel Gomez is a new generation of Republican leader -- one who will represent all of his constituents honorably. Born in Los Angeles and the son of Colombian immigrants, Gomez served his country first as a pilot and then as a Navy SEAL. Later, he earned an MBA from Harvard Business School and joined an investment firm that helped to create jobs and grow small business.
As the son of a Democrat and the husband of an Independent, this proud Republican encourages you to vote for Gabriel Gomez on Tuesday, April 30.
We don’t need to send another lawyer or another career politician to Washington. Massachusetts deserves a Senate candidate who has worked hard and played by the rules, proving that the American Dream is alive and well even in these troubled times.
