In Tuesday night's debate, U.S. Senate candidate Gabriel Gomez was asked directly by opponent Rep. Ed Markey why "would a civilian ever need to fire 100 bullets in under two minutes?" Gomez still wouldn't answer. So in response, the Massachusetts Democrats created the above ad.
That wasn't the only question Gomez refused to answer, however.
On Tuesday night, debate moderator R.D. Sahl put Gomez on the defensive with his first question, asking the venture capitalist and former Navy SEAL why voters should trust him when he has revealed so little about his career.Gomez had essentially one last shot in this final debate to show Massachusetts voters why they should take a chance on him in next Tuesday's special election. He failed.
Gomez attempted to pivot, saying the election is about “who the people are going to trust to actually put the people before party and politics.”
But Sahl said he would come back to the question “because frankly you didn’t answer it.” And Markey piled on, attacking Gomez for refusing to release a list of his clients at private equity firm Advent International.
