### Does $\prod_{n=2}^{\infty} \left(\frac {1}{1-\frac{\chi_k(n)}{n^s}} \right)$ converge for non-principal characters for all $\Re(s) > \frac12$?

This question loosely builds on this one.
Take the following infinite product:
$$N(s,\chi_k)=\prod_{n=2}^{\infty} \left(\frac {1}{1-\dfrac{\chi_k(n)}{n^s}} \right)$$
with $\chi_k$ a Dirichlet ...
