---- — DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Gov. Terry Branstad and former Gov. Robert Ray are set to appear together to reveal the plans for Ray's papers.

Branstad and Ray have a news conference scheduled for Tuesday afternoon at the State Historical Museum. They will announce the plans for Ray's official papers.
