(CNN) - Republican businessman Gabriel Gomez has won the GOP nomination in Tuesday’s primary for the Massachusetts special Senate election, the Associate Press projects.
Gomez will go on to face the Democratic nominee, yet to be decided, in the special election to be held June 25. The victor will fill the seat vacated by John Kerry when he was confirmed secretary of state earlier this year.
In the meantime, Democratic Gov. Deval Patrick has appointed William "Mo" Cowan to serve as interim senator.
