Obama visit highlights suburb role in CO politics

AURORA — Living in the Denver suburbs? Expect a lot of attention from presidential candidates this year.

President Barack Obama’s stop in Aurora Thursday highlights a battleground within a battleground state. Presidential hopefuls won’t just be looking at Colorado, they’ll concentrate their campaigning in Denver’s swing suburbs, where crucial independent voters are concentrated.

GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney held a fundraiser in Aurora in June.

The White House says Obama will talk about energy Thursday in Aurora. Colorado is one of five states the president is visiting on a three-day swing to promote his State of the Union proposals.
