Republican candidates vying for last-minute votes
COHASSET, Mass. (WHDH) -- Republican candidates were out and about all over Massachusetts Tuesday trying to pick up last-minute votes.
Candidates realized with all that has been going on people haven’t been focused on the special election so the continued campaigning to pick up more support.
Michael Sullivan said he feels the momentum is on his side. He expects to do especially well on the south shore. Sullivan was a prosecutor in Plymouth County. President George W. Bush named him U.S. Attorney right after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. He was also in charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
Gabriel Gomez voted in Cohasset Tuesday. This is his first run for public office. He is a former Navy Seal, who has done well as a private equities investor. His people said they have the momentum, citing internal polling showing they have a three-point lead.
The third republican candidate for Senate is Daniel Winslow of Norfolk. He is a former judge and a state representative. Winslow knows it’s going to be a fairly small turnout for voters so he has run a highly-targeted campaign, preferring that over a broad-brush approach.
The results of Tuesday’s primaries will come in live on 7News and WHDH.com starting at 8 p.m.
