DENVER (AP) -- Democratic leaders met in Denver to map out their strategy to help presidential candidate Barack Obama win Colorado and the West in the general election.

Those attending the summit Monday at the governor's mansion included former presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. Gary Hart, U.S. Sen. Ken Salazar, Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter, Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper and former Transportation and Energy Secretary Federico Pena.

Salazar said after the summit that Colorado could be a key state that puts Obama over the top in the election. Those attending the summit agreed to emphasize Obama's plan to help the West.

Salazar said Obama's agenda will provide jobs, harness renewable energy, and promote rural American values.
