About the message: This flier dropped off at a Boulder home describes U.S. Rep. Jared Polis, a Democratic candidate for governor. It emphasizes his "F" rating from the National Rifle Association, his activity against "Big Oil," and his positions on health care and public education.

While the front of the flier says Polis is promising 100 percent renewable energy by 2040, free full-day kindergarten and pre-K and universal health care, it does not describe how he'll pay for such programs.
