New Markey ad targets Gomez claim of independence

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Edward Markey's new television ad aims to undermine rival Gabriel Gomez's claim that he is a "new kind of Republican."

Gomez on Monday faulted the national Republican Party for failing to deliver change and getting "stuck in the past."

In the 30-second ad, Markey says Gomez is echoing the GOP line on abortion, social security and guns.

The ad quotes Gomez saying he is "personally pro-life." Gomez has also said he wouldn't seek to change current law.

The ad says Gomez has suggested increasing the Social Security retirement age, but doesn't mention that Gomez would add a single month to the retirement age each year over 24 years.

The Gomez campaign said Markey was going on the attack rather than defending what they called "his hyper-partisan, ineffective record."
