Republican candidate for US Senate Gabriel Gomez has collected more than $350,000 since Feb. 12, his campaign said Thursday.

The campaign said more than 70 percent of the contributions were under $100, a small-donation metric that campaigns frequently cite to boast of grass-roots support.

Gomez, a Cohasset investor and former Navy SEAL, is running against former US attorney Michael Sullivan and state Representative Daniel Winslow in the GOP primary to fill the Senate seat vacated by Secretary of State John Kerry.

Once clear of the intraparty contest, the Republican nominee will face either Representative Stephen F. Lynch or Representative Edward J. Markey, the two Democratic candidates.
