Senate candidate Buck’s ‘high heels’ remark goes viral

DENVER —Ken Buck’s joke about Jane Norton was caught on tape and is getting attention online.

Buck is running against former Lt. Gov. Jane Norton for the Republican nomination. Asked at a conservative gathering last weekend why Republicans should choose him, Buck made a gender joke.

“Why should you vote for me? Because I do not wear high heels,” Buck said, to laughter from the crowd. A Buck spokesman said the candidate turned serious soon after — a portion not on the tape.

Norton has brought up gender, too. She tells campaign crowds she’d better appeal to women and in a recent ad blasted independent ads against her.

“You’d think Ken would be man enough to do it himself,” Norton said.
