About the message:

This mailer from super PAC Senate Majority Fund supports Republican Senate candidate Christine Jensen, noting she has a "big heart" and "is happy to get to work every morning." It also says she supports higher teacher pay, more classroom funding and equitable school funding, though it doesn't say how she'll pay for that. A Colorado Sun story notes how education funding is hampered by numerous conflicting constitutional provisions.

Jensen faces Democratic state Rep. Jessie Danielson in the District 20 contest.
