Edward J. Markey hits back at Gabriel E. Gomez attacks

Senate campaign takes on a contentious tone

Democrat Edward J. Markey hit back against Republican Gabriel E. Gomez Tuesday, defending his legislative response to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in an attempt to wrest control of the campaign storyline from his Senate opponent.

“Gabriel Gomez says he is not part of politics as usual. But there’s nothing more usual, there’s nothing more cynical, than distorting one’s political record, and that’s what he is doing,” Markey told reporters during a visit to Roche Bros. grocery in West Roxbury.
