About the message: This TV ad from Coloradans for Fiscal Responsibility supports Treasurer Walker Stapleton in the four-way Republican primary for governor. It notes his support for federal tax cuts and his opposition to "sanctuary cities."

About the messenger: Coloradans for Fiscal Responsibility originated in late October 2014, sending one mailer opposing Democrat Betsy Markey for state treasurer. The independent spending committee now says it supports Republican Treasurer Walker Stapleton, who defeated Markey in 2014, for governor.

The messenger's money: The group received $400,000 from the nonprofit Colorado Taxpayers' Advocate Fund, and nearly $100,000 from Better Colorado Now, the super PAC supporting Walker Stapleton for governor. Because the Taxpayers' Advocate Fund is a nonprofit, it is virtually impossible to know where the money is coming from.
