CompleteColorado.com can confirm that an employee of the National Republican Senatorial Committee reserved the internet domain names "www.nortonforsenate.com" and "www.janenortonforsenate.com." The domain names were registered on August 17th by Vincent Harris, the "new media director" for the NRSC. The registration listed Harris as both the administrative and techincal contact, used the correct street address for the NRSC, and also listed the direct-line phone number to Harris' phone with the NRSC.
Whether or not this registration will mean all-out support for a Norton candidacy from the NRSC is not known.
The NRSC's involvment in a Senate race which will include a primary vote where there is no clear cut leader, especially this early in the election cycle, has already produced contentious debate for Republicans in Florida. The NRSC's involvment has also recently become an issue in New Hapmshire as well.
As of this publishing, Vincent Harris has not returned calls to CompleteColorado.com.
Currently, the registrant for both domains is listed as "Domains by Proxy, Inc."
