About the message:

This mailer from a Democratic super PAC uses a gambling theme to portray Republican Lynn Gerber as a bad bet in Arvada's Senate District 19 where Gerber is challening Sen. Rachel Zenzinger. It notes that Gerber has said she supports teachers carrying guns in schools, dismissed COVID-19 as a hoax and said she was motivated to run for office by her opposition to mandatory vaccination.
