A Cohasset businessman and former U.S. Navy SEAL has officially launched his campaign for U.S. Senate.

Republican Gabriel Gomez said in a statement Tuesday he has entered the race for the seat formerly held by John Kerry because he sees "a lot of unproductive noise and bickering" in Washington and thinks he can help fix problems.

Gomez is a newcomer to state politics.

Norfolk state Rep. Daniel Winslow became the first Republican to announce his candidacy last week.

On the Democratic side, U.S. Reps. Edward Markey and Stephen Lynch have already announced their candidacies. Marisa DeFranco, who ran in last year's Senate race but failed to make the primary ballot, is also considering running on the Democratic side.

The primary is April 30. The special election is June 25.
