While Barack Obama continues his European tour, John McCain is continuing to make his case to voters in battleground states.
The Republican presidential candidate was in Colorado Friday, where he spoke to the American GI Forum Convention, a largely Hispanic military group.
McCain has inched ahead of Obama in Colorado according to a Quinnipiac University poll of likely voters. The university's polls in three other closely contested states -- Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin -- also suggest he's narrowing the gap.
While in Colorado, McCain will add to his own list of foreign acquaintances, meeting the Dalai Lama in Aspen. It is the first time McCain has visited with the Tibetan spiritual leader.
After that, he's scheduled to head home to Sedona, Arizona, for the weekend.
