Spanish-language newspaper endorses Markey

The largest Spanish-language newspaper in Massachusetts is endorsing US Representative Edward J. Markey over Gabriel E. Gomez in the US Senate race, saying Markey’s stance on the issues should override any desire to catapult the first Latino senator from the state into office.

El Planeta, a Somerville-based newspaper with a circulation of 40,000, said it endorsed Markey because the Irish-American Democrat would fight harder “to continue opening doors” for Latinos than Gomez, the son of Colombian immigrants and the Republican nominee.
