Associated Press

DENVER (AP) — Colorado’s Democratic governor, Jared Polis, has had to fend off spirited attacks by his Republican challenger, Heidi Ganahl, in his quest for a second term in Tuesday’s election.

Polis insisted Colorado’s best days are ahead, arguing that the state quickly emerged from the coronavirus shutdown poised for strong economic growth.

Ganahl, herself a business entrepreneur who as a University of Colorado regent is the only Republican statewide elected official, faced an uphill battle in a state that’s trended blue over the past decade.
