WASHINGTON – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) released this statement following Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s comments about Gabriel Gomez in a fundraising email earlier today:  

“The people of Massachusetts haven’t gotten any answers from Gabriel Gomez on where he stands, but apparently the Republican leader in the Senate has. Mitch McConnell strongly supports Gomez because he knows that he’ll be a rubber stamp for his extreme energy policies and another roadblock to President Obama’s agenda,” said Jeff Gohringer, National Press Secretary for the League of Conservation Voters. 

Below is the email sent by Mitch McConnell earlier today:

From: Mitch McConnell <>

Date: May 31, 2013, 10:12:59 AM EDT

Subject: I'll match you

Reply-To: Mitch McConnell <>

There’s less than 24 hours left until this month’s fundraising deadline. Hitting this month’s goal is so important that I will match three times your donation, up to a $32,000 commitment.??

A Republican majority in the Senate begins with your support today. Securing a victory for Gabriel Gomez in the Massachusetts Senate special election on June 25th is crucial to taking back the Senate and removing Harry Reid from power. Help us put the reins on an out of control Washington D.C. and begin changing course.

Contribute today and again, I'll match your donation. Working together, we will fight for a new Senate.

Let’s get this done.
