Republican John McCain was on the campaign trail Monday with a town hall meeting in Denver.
The Republican presidential candidate appeared at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
McCain touted his prescription for the ailing economy.
McCain acknowledged that more than 400,000 workers have lost their jobs this year and that people are worried about what the future holds for them, their kids and their neighbors.
He underscored several plans, including cutting taxes, encouraging free trade and building nuclear power plants. McCain says the 45 new plants he wants would mean more than 700,000 jobs.
McCain also wants to double the child deduction to $7,000 and provide up to $5,000 in tax credits to help families buy health insurance.
And the Denver speech repeats McCain's call for an end to the estate tax.
Democrats point out it typically applies to very few people who make a lot of money.
After speaking about the importance of new jobs, Senator McCain answered more than a dozen questions ranging from energy to health care.
Colorado is considered a possible swing state in this year's presidential election. Both McCain and Senator Barack Obama are expected to visit Colorado again before the November election.
