BOSTON (WWLP) - Gabriel Gomez, a political unknown just a matter of months ago, expressed thanks to supporters Tuesday night, after losing in a closely-watched U.S. Senate election.
Gomez, a former Navy SEAL and a businessman from Cohasset, was defeated by longtime Democratic Congressman Edward Markey.
He delivered a concession speech Tuesday night at the Seaport Hotel in Boston, in which he spoke in both English and Spanish. The GOP candidate said that Markey will be a better U.S. Senator now thanks to the issues raised during the campaign.
22News reporter Laura Hutchinson is at Gomez headquarters, and will have live team coverage on 22News at 11 along with Ryan Walsh, who is at the Markey victory party at the Park Plaza Hotel.
