The President continues his trip Thursday with a stops in Pueblo and Colorado Springs, Colorado. He will discuss the fundamental differences between his vision for an economy "built to last" and Mitt Romney's.
President Obama kicks things off with a grassroots event at the Colorado State Fairgrounds in Pueblo (12:45pm ET) and then moves on to Colorado Springs for another grassroots event held on the campus of Colorado College (3:25om ET).
Colorado is expected to be a swing state in the fall election. Republican Candidate Mitt Romney visited the state last Thursday, holding an event in the west Denver suburb of Golden.
This will be the President's first campaign trip to the state after the shootings in Aurora last month. He made an official trip to the state after the shootings to visit with the victims, their families, and the first responders.
President Obama focuses on his pledges and policies for women voters at his event in Denver. He then travels across the state to Grand Junction for another grassroots event in the evening.
At the Denver event, the President is introduced by Georgetown Law Student Sandra Fluke. Ms Fluke made news headlines this spring when she testified at a hearing held by House Democrats regarding the new Health Care Bill's requirement that all employers, except certain religious organizations, provide contraceptive coverage.
Georgetown University is affiliated with the Catholic Church, and up until this point, has not provided contraceptives and certain other women's health services to staff or students using the student health plan. She was called a "slut" by Rush Limbaugh on his radio talk show. Limbaugh later apologized, but the ensuing media coverage made Ms. Fluke a symbol of the health care law's provision.
