Michelle Obama wraps Colorado campaign swing
CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (AP) — First lady Michelle Obama has wrapped up her two-day campaign swing through Colorado, trying to keep this battleground state in the president's column as polls show the race here tightening.
The first lady told crowds in Castle Rock, Durango and Fountain that this year's race in Colorado will be closer than it was four years ago. That's when President Barack Obama became the first Democrat since 1992 to carry Colorado.
Michelle Obama urged supporters to spend the final days leading up to the election making sure newly registered voters turn in ballots.
Her appearance comes a week after her husband's lackluster performance in the first presidential debate at the University of Denver.
Next week, Vice President Joe Biden is coming to Colorado to rally support in Boulder and Greeley.
