Gabriel Gomez lacked common touch in his Senate campaign

THE POLITICAL battle did not receive the attention it should have, but it ended on the right note (“Markey keeps party’s hold on Senate seat,” Page A1, June 26).

Even though the losing candidate Republican, Gabriel Gomez, was younger than his opponent, Edward J. Markey, in my opinion he lost because he did not have fresh ideas and he did not understand the present of the nation.


Perhaps in the future, Gomez will make another attempt at a political position. If he does, he should connect with the common man and common good; this will compensate for the blind spot seen in his debates.
