About the message:

This mailer from super PAC Business Opportunity Fund portrays Republican Sen. Tim Neville and Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper as working hand-in-hand on legislation. While Hickenlooper has signed some of Neville's proposals into law, the two are relatively far apart on issues such as gun control, reproductive health and more. And the governor has endorsed Neville's Democratic opponent, Tammy Story, in this key Jefferson County Senate district.
