DENVER (AP) _ Governor Ritter says Presumptive Democratic
Presidential Nominee Barack Obama has ``great opportunity'' to win
in Colorado in November. He also predicts Obama will win ``hands down'' among hispanic voters.

Ritter, a democrat, made his comments on NBC's ``Meet the
Press'' Sunday in a broadcast from Jackson Hole in Wyoming, site of
the Annual Western Governors' Association meeting this week. Tom
Brokaw interviewed Ritter along with Wyoming Governor Dave
Freudenthal.

Ritter says the economy is a top issue that both Obama and
Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain will have to address.

He also says the country lacks a sensible immigration policy,
which hurts the ability for businesses to hire foreign-born
workers.
