About the message:

This mailer from the Colorado Republican Commitee super PAC urges a vote for Republican George Brauchler for attorney general because of his work as a prosecutor and an army officer.

While it says that Brauchler is the only AG candidate who has tried cases in Colorado courts, Libertarian candidate William Robinson III is a longtime Colorado attorney who has tried cases in the state. Democratic candidate Phil Weiser has tried some cases in appellate courts, but not state-level courts.

About the messenger:

The Colorado Republican Party's independent expenditure committee takes unlimited contributions and may spend unlimited amounts. But the committee isn't supposed to coordinate with candidates.
