About the messenger: Raising Colorado is an independent spending committee that supported candidates in various 2017 and 2015 school board races. The group is now supporting state legislative candidates. They're often seen as being in opposition to teachers unions.

The messenger's money: The group's money comes from the Education Reform Now Advocacy, a New York group, affiliated with Democrats for Education Reform. Education Reform donated $350,000 to that group in late April. Because Education Reform is anonprofit, it's difficult to tell where the money is coming from.
