Gabriel Gomez, the Republican candidate for Senate in Massachusetts's special election next month, has released his first ad. The spot is a biographical introduction for the political newcomer, a collection of snippets from Gomez's GOP primary victory speech last week and TV news reports about his candidacy.

"An aircraft carrier pilot, a Navy SEAL, Harvard business school grad," explains one newscaster in the ad.

"A new kind of Republican," says another. Watch the ad below:

Gomez faces his Democratic opponent, longtime congressman Ed Markey, in the June 25 special election to fill the seat once held by John Kerry, now the secretary of state.
