Former Gov. Weld Endorses Gabriel Gomez for U.S. Senate
Monday, April 22, 2013
Weld once ran for the U.S Senate against John Kerry in 1996. Weld, a moderate Republican endorsed President Barack Obama over John McCain in 2008.
Gomez faces Representative Dan Winslow and former federal prosecutor Michael Sullivan in the GOP primary.
Today I endorsed Gabriel Gomez for U.S. Senate.
After getting to know Gabriel and watching his campaign it is clear to me he is exactly the new American leader that this state needs in the Senate. As a son of immigrants, a Navy SEAL and a successful businessman, Gabriel has a unique set of experiences and skills that will bring an outsider’s perspective to Washington D.C.
As the 68th governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts I hope you will join me in supporting Gabriel in his run for U.S. Senate.
We need a fiscal conservative who is talking about solutions for getting our economy back on track and moving the country forward. This primary has three excellent candidates, but Gabriel’s common-sense ideas and remarkable leadership make him the obvious choice for those that believe deeply in the need for a big tent Republican Party.
Sincerely, Governor Bill Weld
