GABRIEL GOMEZ SMASH HIT ON FOX NEWS SUNDAY

Chris Wallace interviewed Gabriel Gomez this morning on Fox News Sunday on Fox Channel 13 (Comcast). Gomez was confident, poised, articulate and made his case extremely well. As typical, he focused on the reasons to vote for him, not his opponent. He flatly predicted a win on Tuesday and said that his campaigning is showing that momentum is on his side and the most recent polls reflect that movement.

Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace will be repeated on Fox News (Boston Comcast Channel 41) at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.

TV DEBATE TONIGHT FOR SENATE HOPEFULS ON C-SPAN AND LOCAL CHANNELS 2 and 7. REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES MAKE JOINT APPEARNCE IN HYANNIS SUNDAY, APRIL 7TH

Tonight's debate. It will begin at 7 and can be seen on C-SPAN, WGBH and the NBC Boston affiliate Channel 7.

The hour-long debate will be in two parts: Democrats first: Congressmen Edward Markey and Stephen Lynch; then the Republicans: Dan Winslow, Mike Sullivan and Gabriel Gomez. In a recent appearance, Gabriel Gomez noted that Markey was elected to Congress when he was three years old! Lynch has been in Washington for 11 years, moving up from the State House when Democrat Joe Moakley died in office.

In rankings by the the Club for Growth, the premier organization backing candidates who will work to help the productive sector grow, Markey and Lynch are right alongside Maxine Waters at 8%. What should be of particular concern to taxpayers is that Markey is beholden to the S.E.I.U., the union nationally known (including in Massachusetts) for sucking taxpayers dry in their representation of government workers at all levels of government.

At 7:30, the Republicans will have their chance to talk about what it takes to revitalize the economy, deal with trillion-dollar deficits and a hundred trillion dollars in liabilities, but no doubt the usual left wing moderators will want to use up time quizzing them on social issues.

Sunday, April 7th, 3-5, Hyannis Cape Codder. This should be a much better opportunity to get straight talk and staight answers.

The Cape Cod Republican Club is the host of this joint appearance of our three contenders for the Republican nomination to succeed John Kerry in the Senate. Gabriel Gomez, Mike Sullivan and Dan Winslow have all agreed to spend two hours with the voters of Cape Cod.

This may be the only chance we will have to see the three of them together in person on Cape Cod before the Tuesday, April 30 primary, so we should do our best to get there to evaluate the candidates, where they stand on issues and who might be the best opponent to face off against the Democrat primary winner.

This is an important primary and a very important general election. If our Republican nominee can catch fire, victory is possible. Though Democrats have the advantage in registrations, these candidates stir little excitement. In fact, both are viewed as lackluster candidates and are very little known inside as well as outside their congressional districts.. If voters decide what they want is to elect someone who will work to put America back on the road to prosperity, they will vote for the Republican.

Here are the details of the event on April 7th in Hyannis.

ALL THREE REPUBLICAN U.S. SENATE CANDIDATES COMING TO HYANNIS APRIL 7

We had the pleasure of having two of the three Republican candidates to replace John Kerry in the Senate attend our blizzard-delayed Abraham Lincoln Celebration in Chatham on St. Patrick's Day. Dan Winslow declined our invitation.

Newcomer Gabriel Gomez and Mike Sulllivan both received warm welcomes from the more than 100 attending. They stood side by side to make their remarks and take questions in a friendly, collegial manner. (That head in the background belongs to Chatham RTC Chairman Fran Meaney, who presided at the two-part event.)

Gabriel and Mike shake hands (Cape Cod Times photo and story)

The first part of the program was to honor the first Republican and greatest American president Abraham Lincoln.

150 years ago the Civil War was raging. No president before or since faced such a crisis on his Inauguration Day, March 4, 1861. Seven states had already seceded from the Union, four more were to follow and just a few weeks later Ft. Sumter in Charleston Harbor surrendered after 30 hours of Confederate bombardment.

In four years and six weeks Lincoln saved the Union and gave a "new birth of freedom" to all Americans. What a towering accomplishment! What a model he is for courage and persistence and placing nation above politics for those seeking office today. He believed passionately that every man, including those held in slavery, were entitled to economic freedom, the right to enjoy the benefits they earned with their own hands. As Lincoln said, as he would not be a slave, he would not be a master.

So it was fitting to segue into a conversation with two men seeking high office to represent the people of Massachusetts. We know the records of the two congressmen competing for the Democratic nomination. They are for bigger and bigger government, more and more people locked into dependency and voting Democratic, with hardly if ever a thought to what it takes to have a productive private sector providing jobs and opportunity for all.

Both Gomez and Sullivan have achieved a great deal in their lives. Mike Sullivan, a lawyer, was elected a state representative, then elected District Attorney of Plymouth County and then appointed, first as the U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts and then appointed by President George W. Bush to be Acting Director of the ATF. He currently is in the private practice of law.

Gabriel Gomez, son of immigrants from Columbia, is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, a former naval aviator and SEAL (one of only two men to qualify for both) and a Harvard Business School graduate. For the past 16 years he has been working in the private sector helping, among other things, businesses to get started and grow.

With the special Senate primary just weeks away on Tuesday, April 30th, it is a great opportunity for all voters on the Cape that all three Republican candidates will be making a joint appearance on Sunday, April 7th, at 3 pm in Hyannis. This may be the only time we will get to see all three together. We urge all who can to atttend.

This is an important primary. There is an excellent chance that whoever wins the Republican primary will defeat the Democrat. The Democrats have made a mess of the economy for the past four years, fought against not for economic growth and ballooned the deficits and the nation's debt to lure more people onto the government gravy train leading to dependency. This is not the American way. This is not the way to better lives for our children and grandchildren. More and more people are begining to see that America must get back on the right path. Wouldn't it be great to have a Massachusetts Republican Senator join such fighters as Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Jeff Sessions, Mike Lee, Ron Johnson and Rand Paul in the U.S. Senate?

All the details are in the notice below. The event is sponsored the Cape Cod Republican Club. We hope to see you there.

REGULAR MEETING IN MARCH ON MONDAY, MARCH 11TH

Chatham Republicans will meet at 5 in the Chatham Community Center on Monday, March 11th. Up for discussion will be the special senate election to fill John Kerry's seat, the primary being April 30th. The committee has offered opportunities to each candidate to get to meet activists on the Lower Cape. As schedules shake out, we'll report what's planned.

Information about Gabriel Gomez can be found at his campaign website. Click here. Fon Don Winslow, click here. The Michael Sulllivan website is in the development stage.

And don't forget our rescheduled Annual Abraham Lincoln Day, which had to be moved because of the February blizzard. It's 3 to 5:50, Sunday afternoon, March 17th at the Chatham VFW. All Republican senatorial candidates have been invited to attend.

NEW BLIZZARD DATE FOR OUR LINCOLN CELEBRATION! ST. PATRICK'S DAY, MARCH 17TH; SENATE CANDIDATES INVITED

What a blizzard! But we have a new date to celebrate the genius of our greatest president Abraham Lincoln.

abe close up 3.jpg


CHATHAM'S ANNUAL
ABRAHAM LINCOLN
CELEBRATION

SUNDAY, MARCH 17, 2013, 3 TO 5:30
CHATHAM VFW, GEORGE RYDER ROAD

Come honor America's greatest president and the men and women who battled to preserve the Union and free the slaves.

In addition to the Lincoln remembrance there will be a reception for all to discuss the politics of the day. All three candidates contesting for the Republican nomination on April 30 for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by John Kerry have been invited to attend: Gabriel Gomez, Michael Sullivan and Dan Winslow. This annual event drew about 100 last year and is expected to attract about the same this year or more.

1863, 150 years ago this year, was a momentous year for America. The year began with President Lincoln issuing the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1; Lincoln considered this the most important act of his presidency.

The deadly but pivotal Battle of Gettysburg was fought over three days beginning July 1st. (Since our observance will now be on St Patrick's Day, we will note the role of the Irish Brigade, the Fighting 69th from New York, largely composed of Irish immigrants, which fought at Gettysburg.)

Lastly, President Lincoln gave his historic Address in November at the dedication of the Gettysburg Cemetery, harkening back to his issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation, asking that all resolve that the nation will have "a new birth of freedom."

We will review these events in a brief presentation and then hear Chatham's own accomplished thespian Scott Hamilton deliver the Gettysburg Address. State Representative Randy Hunt will speak on the relevance of Abraham Lincoln to those serving in public office today.

The reception following the brief program will be a time for chatter and political talk. We hope all three Republicans contesting for the Republican Senate nomination will be able to attend to introduce themselves.

We'll have patriotic music and songs of the period, refreshments, hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar, a grand prize drawing and a silent auction and sale of writings by and about Lincoln and other items both serious and frivolous.

A good time should be had by all.
