Norton Attacks Buck's Personal Life

In Jane Norton's latest e-mail sent out by Josh Penry, she(he) talks about how Ken Buck is anything but an outside.

 One point I find interesting...

"Outsider? Ken Buck was the best man in Bill Ritter's wedding."

Not sure how the Norton campaign sees this as relevant to Ken Buck's ability to be an effective conservative in the Senate. If anything, Norton shouldn't be the one to attack on that point. May I remind you the dozens of large corrupt lobbyist firms and individuals pulling the strings and funding her own campaign?

  1. Just so you know the facutally challended Norton camp can't get it straight. Buck was not the best man at Ritter's wedding. It was the other way around. Either way the Norton camp is now just making stuff up.
    Norton the outsider, Buck the insider. FEC shows Norton with 355K PAC money to 0 for Buck. Here's the invite and list of people throwing outsider Jane a fundaraiser on
    February 23rdin DC:

    To help out those who might not be familiar with these "Colorado" friends of Jane “I am not the DC insider” Norton here is who they are:
    Mitch McConnell – Minority Leader US Senator Kentucky
    Jon Kyl – Senator from Arizona
    John Thune – Senator from South Dakota
    Lamar Alexander – Senator from Tennessee
    Robbie Aiken – DC Lobbyist
    Phil Anderson – DC Lobbyist, named one of Washington’s top lobbyists 2002-2009
    Judy and Charlie Black – Jane’s sister and brother in law – Top DC lobbyist and McCain campaign senior advisor and DC lobbyist.
    Doyce Boesch – leading lobbyist for Strategic Health Care in DC

    Ed Rahal, DC Lobbyist

    Sure looks to me like Norton is the DC insider.
