Football Hall of Famer Elway to Campaign With McCain

From CBS News' John Bentley:

(DENVER) – Former Broncos quarterback and Colorado icon John Elway will appear with John McCain this morning at a rally here, but there are signs that the GOP does not believe McCain has a strong chance in the state.

The Republican Party cut almost half of their television advertising for McCain in Denver, according to a story by the Associated Press. Polls show a solid but not huge lead for Barack Obama here, a state that President Bush carried twice.

In addition to a morning rally here, McCain has stops in Colorado Springs and Durango.
