Gomez: Markey Has Been a Politician Since I Was Playing Little League Baseball

'I did nine years in the military, half of it in the Navy Seal teams. The other 16 years I've been in the private sector'

Massachusetts senatorial candidate Gabriel Gomez outlined stark differences between himself and his opponent Rep. Ed Markey (D. Mass.) Wednesday on FNC.

Gomez said one of the principle differences he has with Markey is his experience both serving in the military with the Navy Seals and working 16 years in the private sector, while Markey has been a career politician since 1976:

GRETA VAN SUSTEREN: You’re running against Congressman Markey, in office 36 years, since you were in Little League. He’s your opponent. Tell me, where do you differ the most?

GABRIEL GOMEZ: We differ in a lot of areas. One specifically is, you know, he’s been a career politician since I was playing Little League baseball in 1976. And he hasn’t had a job in the real world. I did nine years in the military, half of it in the Navy Seal teams. The other 16 years I’ve been in the private sector helping companies grow and be successful. I understand that there’s a $16 trillion in debt, and we have a unique problem with a weak economic recovery, and it seems that Congressman Markey is talking about everything but the economy.

Gabriel Gomez is a first generation American and the son of Columbian immigrants.

If elected he would be the first Latin American senator from Massachusetts.
