What Ken Buck literally said was, “Vote for me because I do not wear high heels.” (via Political Wire)
A Buck spokesman defends the comments telling the Washington Post that rival Jane Norton (R) “has made gender an issue and noted that high heels have been invoked at several points in the campaign, including at least once by Norton’s campaign manager.”
Norton has gone after Buck for third-party spending, saying he should be “man enough” to do the ads himself. Buck complains that his manhood is being attacked.
“She has questioned my manhood; I think it’s fair to respond,” Buck continues in the video. “I have cowboy boots on. They have real bull— on ‘em. That’s Weld County bull—, not Washington D.C. bull—.”
