It didn't take long for Jane Norton to hit her Senate primary opponent, Ken Buck, for a gaffe made last weekend. Less than a day after video surfaced of Buck joking to a conservative crowd that they should vote for him because "he does not wear high heels," the Norton campaign released a web ad slamming Buck's "attacks" on Norton.
Buck made the comment last weekend in response to a recently-released Norton ad that called Buck's manhood into question for accepting support from 527's and other independent political organizations. "She questioned my manhood, I think it's fair to respond," Buck quipped to crowd immediately after his "high heels" statement.
The Buck campaign released a statement last night dismissing Norton's attacks as a "desperate smear."
