About the message:

This mailer from the Colorado Republican Committee super PAC praises Republican state Senate candidate Tony Sanchez, saying he comes from an immigrant family, will vote against new taxes (though all tax hikes must be approved by voters), prioritize infrastructure spending and stop wasteful spending, though it doesn't identify specifics.

Sanchez faces Democratic state Rep. Brittany Pettersen in this open Senate seat centered on Lakewood and south Jefferson County.

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.
