And we're off. With 21% of the precinct vote in, Republican Gomez leads Democrat Markey 52.7% to 46.9%.
Go here for results as the votes are counted ( Town by town results):
With all the other stuff I didn’t know this was tonight.
Is our guy a RINO or a conservative?
So if Markey wins tonight we know the people in MA are a bunch of socialists. If Gomez wins tonight we know the people in MA are a bunch of socialists.
RINO to the Nth degree
28% in. Rep Gomez 50.6% Dem Markey 49.0%
Figured as much. Thanks.
And the winner is....
Look at this one..
Your mouth may or may not drop..
He’s from Massachusetts... take a guess.
As much as the denizens of Free Republic will bray like whipped mules that this guy is a RINO, a conservative CANNOT win in Massachusetts. Its not going to happen. So take your pick.... RINO or Democrat?
And the loser... EVERYONE!
Yes, he is. Heard him speak, think it was Hannity, anyway, he sounded like a Dem big time. I thought he should change parties right now.
All of the conservatives in Massachusetts live in New Hampshire. Gomez is a RINO, but Markey is a flaming, dripping red, lunatic communists. But tonight, whatever the outcome, many freepers will come out in favor of Markey because they cannot abide RINOs. It’s a bizarre notion, a sickness that does not infect Democrats. As long as they win, they don’t care what you think.
Ah, yes. The “Republican” who is pro-amnesty, pro-fag marriage, and pro-gun control.
I hope the creep loses.
Yup. Well, the Post Apocalyptic video game “Fallout 4” is going to take place in Boston so I guess it fits...
Amazing how wrong the founders were when they said it’s better to have an enemy at your front than in your ranks. Just amazing.
I agree with your post.
At Least...in a contest where NO conservative can win, maybe a “republican rino” can once in awhile add a vote to our side.
Those Freepers you refer to must believe that only a conservative has a shot of actually improving things. They may also be sick of “victorious republicans” selling them down the progressive river. Or maybe not.
“RINO or Democrat”
What’s the difference?
it will be just like the last cheat...Lynn, Salem, Lowell , Lawrence , Revere, Chelsea,
Boston + environs, Worcester and Western MA where the “Smith college” lunatics live.
Take your pick.. low voter turnout..it’s hot! 105% turnout in these districts.
Yea...like immigration for example.
If Gomez loses, does that mean the Eight Gangbanger’s amnesty is in trouble? Massachusetts isn’t ready for a non-white guy Senator.
Not drop. But I had to swallow what was coming up.
I’d feel dirty going on that whack job site , no thanks I’ll see updates here.
Markey now slightly ahead and looks like he will win something like 52-48.
The little I’ve read on this race, the RINO is way behind in the polls.
So, Markey is a better choice?
So the founders were wrong? Yes or no.
Liberalism isn’t a choice. It’s a problem.
That's because the Democrats know how to keep everyone on the same page. The GOP elects people who will stab our side in the back repeatedly. They may elect a conservative Democrat here and there, but By God, that person will vote the party line 100% of the time it is needed. Why waste an effort to elect a Scott Brown or one of the Maine sisters when they undercut the conservative bills at every turn? Frankly I couldn't care less who wins this one. If Gomez wins, that's better, but not by much. He's immediately vote with the Dems repeatedly in a feudal attempt to win in reelection in 16 months.
In the long run, it probably doesn’t make much difference.
Yup and cause even more damage to the right.
To be completely clear, if Jeb Bush was running in the next election and Obama was allowed to run, I would not vote for either.
They have a Native American woman Senator in the other seat, Warren. She’s white as a ghost but claimed to be a Cherokee from Oklahoma. She said it was in her high cheek bones. No joke, sadly.
How many votes does it take to control the Senate? 60. So, how many times do you think that Markey will vote to help you get to 60? Zero. How many times will Gomez vote to help you get to 60? More than zero depending on how much pressure you can put on him, how and where you can scratch his back, and any number of other factors. Bottom line is that political control is a numbers game and you need to know how to play it. Those who don’t know how are called losers.
You expected more from Massachusetts than a RINO? That will always be the best you could achieve in Kennedyville.
Just stop ducking and answer the question. Were the founders wrong that it is better to have an enemy before you than in your ranks or not?
Or are you good with ever more liberalism in the ‘opposition’ party?
Gomez sounds like a RINO, but he is also a former SEAL. I have enormous respect for our military who choose to expose themselves to the rigors of running for public office.
Yeah, this one won’t be close. The RAT will win but it doesn’t really matter.
That is one of the most illogical statements that I have ever read on Free Republic. Read each sentence separately. What do you think you are saying? How are you going to reset after you have met your demise. Amazing, but your thinking has become quite common here.
I don’t like RINO’s but I will take them any day over someone like Markey.
I respect the military too. But A lib is a lib. Seal or no. Look at McCain. Should his service have excused the damage he has done to America?

I wouldn’t have believed it if I didn’t see it with my own eyes, but he comes across like a used car salesman. It’s incongruous, but true.This guy is much worse than Scott Brown, but still better than Market.
How did the Founders reset after the Revolution?
Then should you be upset when they vote with the Dems?
Looks like it is over. Markey wins.
