Gabriel Gomez Is What the Republican Party Needs

His opponent, Ed Markey, has received much more money for his campaign. Gabriel Gomez is a former nay seal, a self-made businessman, a supporter of gay marriage and immigration reform, as well as a native Spanish speaker from a Colombian immigrant family. “He’s an American hero and he was being abandoned by the Republican establishment,” says John Jordan, a California-based Republican donor who was driven by frustration in recent weeks to create a super PAC that pledged to spend up to $1.3 million to help Gomez. “The Republican establishment says they want middle-of-the-road Latino candidates – here they had one.” Former Senator Olymipia Snowe says it is unclear whether the party will follow through to reach out to more moderate candidates.
