In the Massachusetts Senate race, underdog Gabriel Gomez enlisted the help Monday of GOP maverick-in-chief John McCain. There's a reason he called on McCain and not, say, Newt Gingrich.
At a campaign rally for Republican Senate candidate Gabriel Gomez Monday morning, Sen. John McCain didn’t mince his words.
In a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans 3 to 1 and Mr. Gomez’s opponent – 18-term Congressman Ed Markey – leads comfortably in early polls, that may be an understatement. Then again, Senator McCain is no stranger to tough campaigns, or to the kind of party-straddling political identity it takes to woo independents in a deep blue state like Massachusetts.
