That’s outrageous!

That's outrageous! The claims made against Senator Kevin Lundberg by 21st Century Colorado, an arm of ActBlue, "the online clearinghouse for Democratic action," in six recent mailings, would have us believe that instead of being a caring, principled family man and state senator, Kevin is a monster better suited to scare us to death at a local haunted house later this month. But each mailing is based on a complete misrepresentation of Kevin and distortions and lies regarding his voting ... Full Story
