A kinder, gentler Ken Buck
The Daily Caller ^ | February 17, 2014 | Matt K. Lewis

Ken Buck, the presumed front-runner for the GOP Senate nomination in Colorado, is fighting back against the “war on women” narrative that helped doom his Senate campaign in 2010. And the opening salvo in the battle to reclaim his name is coming in the form of a two-minute video entitled, Stephanie’s Story.

The story goes like this: In 2008, Stephanie Drobny and her two young children fled their home in Montana after her abusive husband threatened to murder her and put her in the forest “where the bears would eat” her. But Ken Buck, in his capacity as the Weld County District Attorney, helped her “get through a rough time in my life,” Drobny, who is now a nurse in Greeley, Colorado, says during the video.

Aside from displaying a kinder, gentler Ken Buck, the video speaks to his interest in making policy. In the process of helping Drobny, Buck discovered a major loophole in the law that allowed perpetrators like her husband to continue contacting the children. Buck, Drobny, and even her daughter went to the state legislature so that they could help close the loophole. The bill was signed into law in 2011.

Of course, there’s a good reason why the campaign is anxious to push out these videos now. This time around, Buck tells me he is taking proactive measures to undermine the “war on women” meme that hurt him last time. Buck promises this video is merely be the first in a series of maybe ten, or so, he will release.

The ad can be viewed at the link. It's pretty impressive. Buck says there will be about 10 such ads during the campaign.

The big question isn’t producing good ads, but has he extracted his foot from his mouth when talking to the public and media?

And more importantly, crucifying Udall for being a cruddy father, a backstabbing politician, and a thug.
