President Barack Obama will head west next week to campaign for two Democratic senators facing tough re-election.
Obama will travel to Denver Thursday to speak at a fundraiser for Sen. Michael Bennet. He was appointed to fill the seat vacated by Ken Salazar after Obama nominated him to serve as interior secretary.
Obama will then travel to Las Vegas to attend a Democratic Party fundraiser Thursday night before events Friday with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Despite his leadership position in the Senate, Reid is facing increasingly difficult re-election prospects.
