BOSTON (AP) — Republican U.S. Senate candidate Gabriel Gomez is planning to launch the first television ads of his campaign.
Gomez said the ad will begin airing on Thursday and that he'll maintain a presence on television through the rest of the election. The primaries are scheduled for April 30.
In the ad, Gomez introduces himself in Spanish and discusses his service as a Navy SEAL.
Gomez campaign officials won't say how much the Cohasset private equity investor is planning to spend on the ads.
On Wednesday, a group supporting fellow Republican Senate hopeful Michael Sullivan put out a fundraising letter. The Conservative Campaign Committee said it hopes to raise more than $200,000 for television and radio ads before the primary.
A third Republican in the race, state Rep. Daniel Winslow, has launched radio ads.
Both Democratic hopefuls, Congressmen Edward Markey and Stephen Lynch, have already begun running television ads.
