The stop at the Route 1 eatery was one of many for Gomez yesterday who toured the South Shore on the campaign trail.
The Red Wing Diner in Walpole had United States Senate candidate Gabriel Gomez as a patron Thursday afternoon, and yes, he had the fried clams. Gomez stopped at the restaurant, which is situated on Route 1 near Sharon, as part of a number of stops throughout the state, including New Bedford, Weymouth, Worcester and Auburn. He shook hands with diners and sat down for a bite with some of his supporters. “We’re making a bunch of rounds in the South Shore and hitting a bunch of towns and obviously this place is one of the relics of Walpole," Gomez said. “So we’re going to meet a bunch of hopefully potential voters, introduce myself, hopefully earn their respect and get their vote on April 30.” Gomez is competing for the Republican nomination …

Candidates for U.S. Senate Democratic nomination squared off in Lowell Monday.
U.S. Congressmen Stephen Lynch and Edward Markey met in their second debate Monday ahead of the Democratic U.S. Senate special primary in a contest that contained few fireworks outside of a health care exchange. The debate, held at the University of Massachusetts Lowell and sponsored by the college and the Boston Herald, lasted about 45 minutes and touched a wide variety of issues on which the two Democrats mostly agreed. An early question was asked about the candidates' positions on the Affordable Care Act. Markey (D-Malden) voted in favor of the bill that passed in 2010 while Lynch (D-South Boston) was one of few Democrats who opposed it. Markey said voting for the bill was the "proudest vote of my Congressional career." He said there …

With Warren holding a small lead in the polls, and Brown getting a key endorsement from the Boston Herald, who do you think has the momentum coming into the final days of the election?
Democrat Elizabeth Warren is up by five points over incumbent Republican Scott Brown in the latest WBUR/MassINC poll of the Massachusetts senate race. That's a near-total reversal of the BUR poll last month, which had Brown up by four on Oct. 9. In fact, Warren has been trending upwards in most recent polling. The New York Times' FiveThirtyEight blog has Warren up by four in an average of recent polls. The blog, which uses advanced statistical modeling akin to baseball sabermetrics (think Moneyball) gives Warren an 89 percent chance of winning the election. But Brown's got some significant energy on his side as well. He's been barnstorming the state with political luminaries like Senator John McCain and today won the Boston herald's …

A new WBUR/MassINC polls shows Senator Scott Brown a 48 percent to 45 percent lead over Elizabeth Warren but a UMass-Amherst polls gives Warren a 48 percent to 46 percent lead.
Two new polls released yesterday show a race that has yet to have a definite leader in the fight to represent Massachusetts in the Senate. While a new poll from WBUR and MassINC of 501 likely voters conducted between October 5-7 shows Senator Scott Brown leading Elizabeth Warren 48 percent to 45 percent, a new UMass-Amherst/YouGov America poll of 500 registered voters taken between October 2-8 gives Warren a 48 percent to 46 percent lead. The margin of error is +/- 4.4 percent in the WBUR poll and +/- 5 percent in the UMass poll. The new WBUR poll shows a seven point swing since the last WBUR/MassINC poll. In the previous poll taken between September 26-28, Warren led 49 percent to 45 percent. Based on the WBUR poll, Senator Brown …
