BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Sen. Elizabeth Warren stumped for embattled Sen Mark Udall on Friday as Democrats continued to try to turn out demoralized liberals to save the Senate.

Udall is facing a tough challenge from Gardner, and recent polls have shown him falling behind the two-term congressman. Democrats are counting on their strong get-out-the-vote operation to close the gap and Warren, a favorite among liberals, jetted in to help.

“We’re all looking at you, Colorado!” Warren cried to a lecture hall full of supporters at the University of Colorado, Boulder. “What’s going to determine this race in Colorado is you and people just like you across this state.”

Democrats have outperformed public polls in Colorado in the past two elections partly due to their well-organized and well-funded ground operations. Ballots were mailed to all voters this week under a law passed over Republican objections last year that also allows citizens to register to vote through Election Day.

Gardner, back from a congressional hearing on Ebola Thursday where he reiterated his call for a ban on travel from the affected West African countries, spoke to a downtown Denver group and highlighted his oft-discussed campaign plan to boost Colorado’s economy.
