McCain, Palin plan final GOP push in Colorado

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado “” John McCain and Sarah Palin are making final visits to Colorado to try to nab the state’s nine electoral votes.

Palin headlines a rally Monday evening in Colorado Springs, and McCain plans to visit Grand Junction on Election Day.

The Republicans are following back-to-back weekend appearances by Democrat Barack Obama, who spoke in Denver and Pueblo.

Palin spent Sunday in Ohio, where she told voters Obama would raise taxes and expand government. McCain revisited New Hampshire, where his nomination bid got a revival during the presidential primaries.

Polls indicate McCain is trailing in Colorado, but the GOP says the state could potentially swing to McCain. Colorado has chosen Democratic presidents just three times since 1948.
