About the message:
This mailer from super PAC Senate Majority Fund attacks Democratic state Rep. Faith Winter for not supporting families and kids in education. Winter is challenging Republican state Sen. Beth Martinez Humenik.
- Her votes for a bill to prevent state income tax deductions for those who use 529 education savings accounts intended for college instead for K-12 private school tuition. That bill died in the Senate.
- A vote against a budget amendment to increase funding for schools. The measure would have taken money away from Medicaid reimbursments or the state employee pension program, according to the Denver Post.
