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.
