GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. (AP) – Republican Rep. Mike Coffman met Saturday with former presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina at an event to talk about expanding business opportunities for women.

Coffman faces a competitive challenge in Colorado’s most ethnically diverse congressional seat.

His opponent, former state Senate President Morgan Carroll, issued a statement Saturday saying Coffman has repeatedly voted against women’s issues, including the Paycheck Fairness Act, paid family leave funds for women’s health care.

Carroll says Coffman is out of touch with the women in the community.
