Gabriel E. Gomez blasts Edward J. Markey on safety

Republican Gabriel E. Gomez, on defense in the early weeks of his race against Democrat Edward J. Markey, on Monday unleashed a frontal attack on his opponent’s homeland security credentials, trying to put Markey on his heels just over a month before voters go to the polls and elect a new US senator.

“The bottom line is: Nothing he’s done has made our nation safer,” Gomez said of Markey at a high-dollar fund-raiser, one of the two events he attended with Senator John McCain.
