McCain said Tuesday that there was no truth in that report.
"We're going to be in Denver and Colorado Springs in the next couple of days. We're not only competitive in Colorado but we'll win Colorado," McCain said.

A national campaign spokeswoman, Jill Hazelbaker, issued a statement saying the race between McCain and Obama was tightening.
"We are within striking distance in the key battleground states we need to win," Hazelbaker said.
The report came as Sarah Palin wrapped a daylong trip through Colorado, where she attracted crowds in the thousands at each of her three stops in Colorado Springs, Loveland and Grand Junction.
