About the message:

This mailer from super PAC Better Jobs Coalition says Republican Rep. Colin Larson will help reopen schools and provide relief to small businesses after COVID-19 lockdowns. It portrays his opponent, former state Rep. Justin Everett, as someone who was asleep on the job when he served in the legislature before his unsucessful 2018 run for state treasurer. 

About the messenger:

Better Jobs Coalition is an independent spending group formed by Rick Enstrom, a Republican operative. The group formed in 2016 and supported Republican legislative candidates. The group often gets involved in Republican primary elections and also supports Republcians in general elections.

The messenger's money:

In 2020, much of the group's money is coming from a nonprofit by the same name, meaning it's impossible to tell who the individuals behind the money are. The group is also getting large donations from other nonprofits, including Ready Colorado, a conservative education reform group, and Western Citizens Protecting Our Constitution.
