Recent polls show John McCain trailing Barack Obama in Colorado by about 5 points, but McCain is hopeful a trio of events in the Rocky Mountain state will change that.

McCain's campaign says recent criticism of Obama's tax plan is
having an impact.
The Republican nominee is making the stops in Colorado despite
cutting back his ads in the state and polls showing his opponent
with a sizable lead.

McCain today has a rally scheduled in Denver, a small business
forum in Colorado Springs and an outdoor event at a football field
in Durango.
The state voted for his fellow Republican, President Bush, in 2000 and 2004, but recent surveys have shown Obama with a 5 percentage point lead.

The state awards 9 of the 270 electoral votes needed to become president.
