About the message:

This is the fourth mailer from nonprofit Colorado Values Project promoting Democratic state Rep. Brittany Pettersen. She's running for the open Senate seat in Lakewood's District 22, though the mailer doesn't mention that. It does mention several bills she's supported dealing with health care and support for senior citizens. She faces Republican Tony Sanchez in the November election.

About the messenger: Colorado Values Project is a nonprofit formed in August 2017. It's unclear who's behind the group; we're reaching out to those connected with it. The group's website says it's "protecting the Colorado way of life."

The messenger's money: Because the group is a nonprofit, there's no way to find out who is funding it, although the group is collecting donations via Act Blue.
