Statesman ‘InnerView’ with Jane Norton

Norton visited the offices of The Colorado Statesman on June 23. Below is the full transcript of the conversation with Norton.

Colorado Statesman (CS): Has this been a little bit of a different campaign than you imagined?

Jane Norton (JN): Yes, it has. You know, in a traditional campaign, in the primary you’re reaching out to all the Republican groups, and we’re certainly doing that, but we have the Tea Party groups and the 9/12 groups and these entities that have just sprung up — people who are just upset about the direction that the nation is headed.

CS: Did you really expect this to be such an intense primary? I mean there was a possibility that Ken Buck was going to drop out of the race, and Ryan Frazier, of course, did.

JN: Right. Well, Ken did drop out at one point and had me in his office and said he was going to support me and all that. And after a couple of days, I think he had remorse about his hasty decision, he said. But we always knew it would be a tough primary. I mean people are very, very concerned about what’s happening not only in the state but across the nation. So we knew it was going to be a difficult challenge.  - More -
