About the message:
This mailer from Democratic state Senate candidate and state Rep. Brittany Pettersen contrasts her with Republican opponent Tony Sanchez on education.
She says she supports higher teacher pay, full-day kindergarten and increased access to pre-kindergarten.
She says Sanchez wants to "divert taxpayer dollars" to for-profit schools, citing a pledge he signed in 2013 with Colorado Union of Taxpayers, which he serves on the board of. It also cites a more recent endorsement by the Republican Liberty Caucus of Colorado. That group favors eliminating government control and funding of schools in favor of private charity, endowments and scholarships.
