LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is heading to battleground Colorado.

It's the first stop in what advisers call an "intense battleground state schedule" designed to counter GOP criticism that his campaign is moving in the wrong direction.

The former Massachusetts governor has the stage to himself on Sunday. President Barack Obama plans to be in Washington and has no official business or campaign activity scheduled.

For Romney, an evening rally in Denver represents his first public event of the weekend. With the election less than seven weeks away, he's facing pressure to spend less time raising money and more time explaining his plans to voters in swing states.

Later in the week, Romney launches an Ohio bus tour followed by a stop in Virginia.
