Judge rejects challenge to candidacy of Jane Norton

A Denver District judge Wednesday rejected a legal challenge to Jane Norton’s U.S. Senate candidacy.

Judge Robert S. Hyatt upheld the ruling of the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office that found she had sufficient signatures to be placed on the August Republican primary ballot.

Norton, a Grand Junction native and former lieutenant governor, faces Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck in the primary.

On the Democratic side, incumbent Sen. Michael Bennet faces a challenge from former Colorado state House Speaker Andrew Romanoff.

Grand Junction resident Tom Bjorklund, a Republican, filed the lawsuit challenging the validity of Norton’s petitions by questioning the eligibility of her petition circulators.
