About the messenger:
The Colorado Economic Leadership Fund is a nonprofit group formed in 2014. It doesn't have a website, nor is it registered as a political committee with the Secretary of State.
The messenger's money:
In 2016, Anadarko Petroleum donated $510,000 to the group, while Noble Energy gave $25,000.
In 2018, the nonprofit donated $200,000 to Fair Maps Colorado, which supports two measures on redistricting; $50,000 to Coloradans for Responsible Reform, which opposed a measure limiting housing growth that didn't make the ballot; and $15,000 to the Business Opportunity Fund, an independent spending committee that supports pro-business candidates.
