Bush, Kerry Campaign in Western Battleground States Ahead of Debate - 2004-10-12

President Bush and Democratic challenger Senator John Kerry are campaigning Tuesday in western battleground states, as they gear up for their third and final debate in Tempe, Arizona.

President Bush will speak with voters in Colorado before traveling to Arizona to prepare for Wednesday's debate.

Mr. Kerry will spend a second day in New Mexico, where he will continue to campaign on the economy, terrorism and other key election issues.

Wednesday's debate will focus on domestic issues and the economy, and comes as polls continue to show an extremely tight race between the two candidates.

A Reuters/Zogby poll released today indicates President Bush and Senator Kerry are in a 45 to 45 dead heat going into the November 2 vote.
