ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Nine days and counting before Election Day and the candidates are busy stumping in swing states.

Barack Obama will hold rallies in Colorado today. John McCain plans a stop in Iowa to make up for some lost ground there before heading to Ohio.

The candidates have spend a lot of time in the West over the past few days since Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada are seen as toss-ups and could prove vital if the electoral math gets tight.

In Albuquerque last night Obama told supporters, that John McCain's criticism of President Bush is like "Robin getting mad at Batman."

McCain continues his assault as well, telling crowds in New Mexico, Obama is a tax-and-spend liberal certain to push for more government and higher spending.
