With control of Senate at stake, this is a national fight

RE “GOMEZ’S goal — sensible centrism” (Op-ed, May 22): I would vote for Gabriel Gomez for US Senate if he were running in Kentucky. Given the extreme-right bent of Republicans and the party’s use of 60 votes in the Senate, I choose instead to rely on a solid liberal with a track record as a doer, not an ideologue.

Would a novice Senator Gomez be truly independent, or would he do as Scott Brown did and bow to GOP pressure?


Scot Lehigh is wrong to suggest that election of a Republican would not upset the Senate balance that is now in Democratic hands. This is a national fight against a Republican Party whose intent on gridlock is well documented.
