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):
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.
One less RINO to help Bhoner. Not a bad thing.
The founders understood how the business of politics worked and how to form a majority coalition to advance their core beliefs and agenda. You clearly do not understand this and will be cast aside as an irrelevant footnote. See Whigs.
I’ll put you down as a Markey supporter. Quite a distinction, you should be proud.
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?
Republican....Democrat. what’s the difference?
Too bad, onyx.
Markey wins. I’ll leave you alone, I wouldn’t want to interrupt your celebration. Congratulations on your victory tonight.
How does this help or hurt Boehner? He is not a Senator?
“Forget it, Jake, it’s Massachusetts.”
Let the record show that rather than answer a simple and well known point of history, you ducked and dodged to avoid shredding your own argument.
You are far from the first ‘win at all cost’ psuedocon to do so.
Bhoner leverages both sides of the asile to hammer the few conservatives left.
