Norton targets health care and more

The Republican former lieutenant governor is locked in a heated primary with Ken Buck to win the GOP nomination for the U.S. Senate race.

Health care is Norton's signature issue, and she returned to it at an early morning appearance in June with Attorney General John Suthers. It was the first day of a "repeal Obamacare" tour the two took around the state.

"It's striking at the core of who we are as a free and independent people," Norton told an audience of about 15 at the tour's first stop, a conference room at the South Metro Chamber of Commerce.
