Markey ad links Gomez, national GOP

Seizes on e-mail by McConnell urging donations

One day after national Republicans jumped into Massachusetts’ US Senate race to support GOP candidate Gabriel Gomez, his Democratic opponent seized the opportunity to unleash an online ad tying Gomez to national conservative leaders.

The ad put out by US Representative Edward J. Markey’s campaign, titled “McConnell’s Republican Majority,” paints Gomez as vital to the national Republican party’s agenda and attempts to link him directly to past statements by Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell, whom Democrats regard as a chief obstructionist to the Obama administration.
