Today Gabriel Gomez hopes to win this special election for the open senate seat in Massachusetts he's drawn comparisons to the State's former Republican senator Scott Brown.
Remember that story.
Gomez is known as a political outsider.
Brown was seen as an independent they both served in the military and their opponents are part of the quote political establishment.
Remember brown beat out the State's Attorney General Martha Coakley three years ago to take over the -- and the seat held by the late Ted Kennedy.
And Gomez is taking on one US congressman.
Ed Markey so could mr.
Gomez be the next Scott Brown.
Let's talk do Scott Brown who joins us live right now from -- glorious -- Hey good morning I know you're out -- campaigning for mr.
Gomez yesterday I was gone.
-- is is a nice guy hard worker great family independent as you know a newcomer neophyte he's up against a political machine so.
I'm hopeful he'll do well there seems to be within -- circle of of support is a tremendous amount of energy but.
Outside in the and Massachusetts I don't see a whole lot of energy it's going to be.
I think -- usually low turnout and strictly a numbers game so it comes out as to whether you can actually get.
I'm more than they have -- is pretty simple 50% plus one.
It's a math problem you're exactly right that should tell -- You know give people context you know could he be the next Scott Brown when you were running for Kennedy's seat.
The dynamic in the country was different because the whole country was talking about obamacare and would would Scott Brown potentially be the one.
Final vote against it that stops it.
Well we actually I was able to do just that is you know they went through.
You know I -- -- turn themselves into pretzels to do something through.
You know reconciliation and into political minute parliamentary maneuvers to get it passed -- -- -- getting a 100% of the love they only got like 40% of often you see the entire mess now yes it's not that same.
Type of energy out there there's not an issue there are issues that I think that having capitalize on more obviously had -- guys he had.
-- -- yet fast and furious AP you have a whole hosting of the detonated in the deficit in the economy.
They have a whole host a -- but they've chosen a different strategy.
We'll see if it works yes indeed well the -- that the Democrats certainly are worried about it I mean they're pulling out all the stops they're bringing in the big guns.
Yeah they've they've done this and this is that dirty.
Politics wanna wind you have somebody who's been there for 37 years back going Gerald for him back when they had actually made tracks if people remember what those are who but who really he's he's never hear him -- -- -- that.
Cut -- ribbon or something has a house in Chevy Chase that is is.
Legal residents and bottom line he's never here so you have a choice you gonna vote for somebody is gonna walk down the aisle as you've seen -- -- Harry how do you want me to vote up or down.
And and be that rubber stamp be consummated it -- there's going to be somebody's gonna be an independent voter and thinker and try to.
Do what's best for the people Massachusetts without any.
Many any beholden to anybody who didn't.
Why do you jump it.
And I needed a break I've I've been campaigning for almost fifteen years between assessor selectmen stay red state senate US senate.
The thought of running again raising another thirty to fifty million dollars and then the next day running again in raising -- -- fifty to seventy million dollars.
You know -- it doesn't compare the big contract they got with fox so what that I say yeah.
Have a you know between the big fox contract in -- obviously got a box of eight track tapes -- the garage somewhere.
I don't know this -- did you -- -- that it.
But the right Scott ran great analysis nobody knows more about this story than you do and the senator will be with -- back here on fox opens tomorrow.
