Gabriel E. Gomez sought Senate appointment

Gabriel E. Gomez, the ­Cohasset businessman who is running as a Republican in the US Senate special election, lobbied Democratic Governor Deval Patrick to give him the temporary appointment to the seat after John F. Kerry ­resigned to become secretary of state.

Gomez’s campaign confirmed that Gomez, a wealthy private equity manager from Cohasset, made the appeal to the governor because he wanted to give Patrick a chance to display a bipartisan spirit.
