About the message:

This mailer from the Colorado GOP a few days before the presidiential primary criticizes The Gazette, former U.N. Ambassador and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and 5th Congressional District candidate Jeff Crank, while praising GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump. It also mentions Gazette owner Phil Anschutz, a billionaire and Republican political donor, in criticizing the newspaper for its coverage of GOP Chairman Dave Williams, the other Republican candidate in the 5th District.

The Colorado Republican Committee is the federal fundraising arm of the Colorado GOP.

This federal political party committee may take up to $10,000 per year from individual donors. Most of the party's money in 2024 came from $20,000 to $40,000 fees charged to presidential candidates to get on the ballot and a joint fundraiser with other national Republican committees.
