After voting in his hometown of Cohasset, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Gabriel Gomez and his wife and four children stopped by his headquarters in Watertown, then had lunch at Mr. Bartley's Burgers in Harvard Square.

"I’m feeling great," Gomez said. "We’re coming here because we came here during the primary. Same people, good luck."

Gomez walked through the door to smiles from patrons and staff. After all, there's a burger named after him, with the description "Seal of approval” – a nod to his time as a Navy SEAL. Gomez appeared relaxed, sat down and ordered the Gomez Burger – American cheese, bacon and jalepenos. When asked if he has any campaign regrets, he said only one.

"I would have done one thing differently," Gomez said. "I was my kid’s Little League Baseball coach before this thing started. And what happens? I had to step down and they win the world series in our town. And I wish I had been the head coach the whole season."

Gomez’ son smiled at him. Nearby, a Gomez supporter – 35-year-old Bob Ticehurst, from Billerica, says he thinks Gomez has a stellar resume. Ticehurst likes that Gomez is a moderate Republican.

"We need somebody new down there," Ticehurst said. "I have it out on Facebook, I’ve texted hundreds of people, sent out emails out there. I think a lot of people are excited about him and they’re spreading the word about him. I know my friends are and my mother is too."

Gomez is filling the day with more stops - in Wakefield, Worcester, Dedham, and West Roxbury. His campaign party is in Boston at the Seaport Hotel.
