Durango, Colo. (AP) - Colorado lawmakers are continuing to talk about health care.

Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet is in Durango Monday for a discussion of rural health care. And Democratic Rep. Jared Polis is meeting with voters at a general open meeting in Boulder.

In Denver, Gov. Bill Ritter planned to announce a new technology sponsored by United Healthcare to link rural health providers. And in Fort Collins on Tuesday, Democratic Rep. Betsy Markey plans the first of 11 constituent meetings on health care.

Democrats are in full campaign mode to sell a proposed health care overhaul. Over the weekend, President Barack Obama was in Grand Junction for a Town Hall Meeting on the topic, and Ritter appeared on NBC's ``Meet The Press'' to talk up the plan.
