The Democratic Congressman beats his Republican rival, and the make-up of the Senate is unchanged.
At Wednesday’s debate Republican candidate Gabriel Gomez gave some indication of how he would vote on reproductive health policy, a topic that he has been reluctant to discuss in detail on the campaign trail.
After being questioned by a Boston Globe reporter about whether he would have supported a bill last year to limit insurance coverage of contraception, Gomez refused to answer, saying “I’m not sure how much more clear I can be.”
The Republican Massachusetts Senate candidate has a track record of being somewhat ambiguous about the extent of his anti-choice beliefs.
The winner on the June special election in Massachusetts won’t change the balance of power in Congress, but could change the political landscape heading into the 2014 midterms.
