RNC Statement on the Massachusetts Senate Special Election Results
WASHINGTON - Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on the Massachusetts Senate special election results:
“Candidate Gabriel Gomez fought hard and should be proud of offering real solutions and a fresh perspective throughout his campaign,” said Chairman Priebus. “I extend my deepest gratitude to him, his family and all volunteers for their dedication. As a former Navy SEAL and first generation American, we hope he will continue to play an active role in our party and inspire others to pursue public service.
“Gabriel proved to be a strong candidate. Even in liberal Massachusetts, he forced Democrats to pull out all the stops as they desperately called in President Obama, President Clinton and Vice President Biden for backup.
“Republicans now look forward to winning this seat in 2014 when we reclaim the majority in the U.S. Senate.”
