WYOMING-DEMOCRATIC GOVERNOR

CHEYENNE — Democrats have their best shot in a dozen years of reclaiming the governor’s office in one of the reddest states.

Democrats have held Wyoming’s governor’s office 32 of the last 55 years. By Mead Gruver. SENT: 900 words, AP photos.

BRONCOS-JONES

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — As far as the Broncos are concerned, Adam “Pacman” Jones brings experience and energy to Denver but none of the baggage from a long list of run-ins with the law and the league.
