A Former Navy Seal Badass With No Political Experience May Become A U.S. Senator

A Former Navy Seal Badass With No Political Experience May Become A U.S. Senator
Politics

A Massachusetts special election to replace John Kerry in the U.S. Senate has been put in place, and one candidate stands out from the rest, as his story is far from ordinary.

Gabriel Gomez has zero political experience, but the 47-year-old Republican may convince Massachusetts voters to have him replace the current Secretary of State.

Gomez, the son of Colombian immigrants, graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy, became a Navy pilot, and eventually a Navy SEAL operator.

Gomez then went on to graduate from Harvard Business School, and became a successful businessman operating in private equity.

He “might have been compiled by a team of Republican consultants trying to craft the perfect candidate,” wrote the Boston Globe.

The super-Republican dream child is perfectly suited to represent the GOP, as he possesses many of the qualities Republican voters are enticed by.

Check out some of his accolades from his official bio:

• He’s a first generation American citizen, having been born in Los Angeles. He first learned English when he was in kindergarten.

• After the Naval Academy, he went to flight school and piloted surveillance planes off aircraft carriers.

• He was class leader during SEAL training and went on to be a platoon commander in the SEAL teams.

• Received an MBA from Harvard.

• Joined some notable investment firms, including Boston-based Summit Partners and Advent International, where he earned millions (and helped self-finance his own campaign).

Gomez won the Republican primary on Tuesday, and is set to go against Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) in the general election on June 25th.

One’s thing for certain: Gabriel Gomez is a name to look out for in the near future.
