About the message:
This mailer praises Democratic 6th Congressional District candidate Jason Crow for not accepting donations from "corporate special interests," while claiming incumbent Republican Rep. Mike Coffman has taken $17 million from such interests.
Based on data from the Center for Responsive Politics, which is cited by the mailer, Coffman has raised $16.6 million total in his congressional career, with most of that from individuals (although some of them certainly work at corporations). Only $5.2 million came from PACs.
The mailer comes from End Citizens United, a super PAC this is also airing TV ads supporting Crow and opposing Coffman.
About the messenger: End Citizens United is a political action committee supporting Democratic candidates who support ending the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision, and supporting campaign finance reform to get big money out of politics.
The messenger's money: More than 400 Coloradans have donated nearly $156,000 to the PAC.
