Message type: mailer

Message tone: negative

About the message: This mailer from Republican Sen. Lee Cotter attacks his Democratic opponent, Rep. Jeff Steinborn, on the death penalty, which Cotter supports and Steinborn opposes. Cotter translates his opponent's opposition as an affront to law enforcement and safety. This mailer comes in advance of a Sept. 30 special session at which Republican Gov. Susana Martinez is asking lawmakers to reinstate the death penalty for those convicted of killing police or corrections officers or children.
