MA SEN: Gomez Isn’t A ‘Mitch McConnell Clone,’ But He’s No Ted Cruz Either
In the second debate between Republican Gabriel Gomez and Democratic Rep. Ed Markey, two things were clear. One, Gomez isn’t “too conservative.” Second, Markey is clueless to think that he is some “Mitch McConnell clone.” Yet, we’re talking about Ed Markey here. On the budget, Markey had these words of wisdom last night: ”it’s really not math. It’s just arithmetic.” Then again, Gomez is no Ted Cruz. | Read More »

PPP on the Brown-Warren Senate Race: A Polling Post-Mortem
Polls are back in the news, with the release of four public polls and an internal Gabriel Gomez campaign poll in the June 25 Massachusetts special Senate election to replace John Kerry. 3 of the 4 public polls show Ed Markey with a distinct but still surmountable lead, an average of 6 points; the fourth shows him up by 17 and looks like an outlier, | Read More »
MA Sen: Markey Not Popular Independents, Race Is Virtually Tied
The Massachusetts special election to fill John Kerry’s vacancy is a statistical dead heat. Markey’s rather unimpressive record after nearly four decades in Congress seems to be keeping from jumping ahead in the polls, despite the Bay State being a Democratic stronghold. Republicans have been hammering Markey on his 1992 ethics investigation, and the ninety-two bounced checks that contributed to the closure of the House | Read More »
Ed Markey: foolish on Benghazi. Foolish on the Boston Marathon bombing, too?
I’d like everybody to pay close attention to this Tweet: .@mittromney more interested in bogus #Benghazi theory than battling auto bankruptcy. #battleship #p2 — Ed Markey (@MarkeyMemo) October 23, 2012 It’s from back in October of 2012, when – as Legal Insurrection very helpfully notes – Rep.

Gomez responds to Markey’s despicable negative attack ad
Yesterday we took the very Liberal Democrat Congressman Ed “Mudslinging” Markey to task for his despicable ad that features Republican Gabriel Gomez’s face directly next to Osama Bin Laden’s.
Republican Gabriel Gomez, a former Naval Aviator and Navy SEAL, responded directly to Markey’s negative attack ad this morning on Fox and Friends. Gomez called Markey’s use of Osama Bin Laden a disgrace, not only to his service, but also to his former teammates and the intelligence of the Massachusetts voters:

Markey so fearful of Gomez he goes negative right out of the box
Democrat U.S. Senate hopeful, the very Liberal Congressman Edward Markey, launches a negative ad just two days after winning the Democrat primary in the campaign to fill the now vacant Senate seat formerly held by John Kerry.
The despicable Markey ad, features Gomez’s face directly next to Osama Bin Laden’s. Its hard to imagine how worried and desperate Markey must be to do that to a former naval aviator and Navy SEAL. Markey’s ad is pure swift boating — a tactic the left relentlessly rails against. The Markey ad brings back memories of the controversial Max Cleland ad that became a Liberal/Progressive cause célèbre during the 2008 campaign, but even that ad didn’t do what Markey campaign has done.
So why does Markey feels he has to resort to such gutter tactics at the start of his campaign against Republican nominee Gabriel Gomez? Perhaps it is the newest polling on the Gomez/Markey race. According to a new Emerson College poll released Thursday, Gomez trails Markey by just six points — 36 percent to 42 percent. The new poll is in line with Public Policy Polling revelation that its first general election Massachusetts Senate poll results look like a single digit race
