CONTEST

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — Michelle Obama has a history of winning over voters in Colorado, and she’s bringing her political star power back to Colorado for two events.

The president’s wife is stopping in Centennial and Pueblo on Wednesday to campaign for her husband’s re-election. Two years ago, she headlined a fundraiser for Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet. Bennet went on to win.

Off the campaign trail, Michelle Obama stopped in Colorado Springs last month to applaud more than 200 U.S. servicemen for their courage at the 2012 Warrior Games.

Michelle Obama was campaigning in Nevada on Tuesday. It was her third visit of the year to that swing state.
