Walt Klein, Ken Buck’s Norton killer, now hunting Bennet

On Primary Day two weeks ago, Weld County D.A. Ken Buck had just defeated former Lieutenant Governor Jane Norton to win the GOP nomination to face Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet in the general election. Buck campaign consultant Walt Klein gave a short speech to the crowd at the victory party in Loveland and then climbed down from the stage onto the floor, smiling and shaking hands. Klein has been working Colorado Republican electoral politics for thirty years and was basking in the hard-fought success of this latest campaign. "How many Nortons is that now?" asked the Colorado Independent. Klein's smile turned into a grin and he shot three fingers into the air.
