DENVER (AP) -- President Barack Obama is emphasizing women's health issues on his campaign visit to Colorado.

The president started his visit on Wednesday with a rally in Denver, where he was introduced by Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke. She gained notoriety after conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh called her a slut because she supports the Obama health care law's requirement that insurance companies cover contraception.

The president is also expected to focus on the economy during stops in Grand Junction, Pueblo and Colorado Springs.

A new Quinnipiac University poll shows Obama and Mitt Romney tied among voters in Colorado households earning between $30,000 and $50,000 per year -- an important target. Obama leads among voters with lower incomes; Romney is favored by those making more.

    Re: "President Barack Obama plans to emphasize women's health issues" Quick -- which sex is healthier and lives longer? Which sex owns most of the financial wealth in the U.S.? Which sex does Obama pander to non-stop, as in "Obama plans to emphasize women's health issues"?
