The Boston Globe, "In his pitch to the governor, Gomez predicts that guns and immigration will dominate the debate during his appointed tenure and says, 'I support the positions President Obama has taken on these issues, and you can be assured I will keep my word and work on these issues as I have promised.'"

WBUR, "With more than a month to go to the primary, Sullivan is in the lead among Republicans, with 28 percent of likely GOP voters saying they’d pick him. Winslow is second, with 10 percent, and Gomez trails with 8 percent."

WBUR, "'I was raised Catholic, I’m personally pro-life,' Gomez said. 'But I am not going down to D.C. to change the law. Roe v. Wade was settled 40 years ago. It’s settled law in Massachusetts. Justice Scalia, a very conservative justice, has effectively said that it’s established law. And I agree with him. However I do not support late-term abortion. I think you should have parental consent.'"

This segment aired on April 3, 2013.
