Colorado GOP attacks women for supporting wildly popular family leave

By Eric Boehlert - September 28, 2018

Why would Republicans target family leave benefits right now?

In Colorado, new GOP campaign mailers went out recently targeting three key Democrats in toss-up state Senate districts.

The advertisements warned that Jessie Danielson, Brittany Pettersen, and Faith Winter are out of touch with voters because they support a proposed bill to create a statewide fund for paid family leave benefits for working Coloradans.

“The advertisements allege that support for the family-leave program by Danielson, Pettersen, and Winter shows that they are too partisan and should be defeated in November’s election,” The Colorado Times Recorder reported.

The move comes as the GOP tries to maintain control of the Colorado Senate, where it holds just a one-seat majority.

Danielson, Pettersen and Winter are running in three of the five key toss-up races that will likely determine control of the upper chamber next year.
