Owens, who served as the 40th Governor of Colorado from 1999 to 2007, made a post on Facebook saying he’ll support whomever the winner of the race is, Donald Trump or Joe Biden.

Owens said in part “I will personally acknowledge and honor as President whichever of the two candidates achieves 270 Electoral votes. We did not question the validity of our elections in 1864, in the midst of our Civil War, nor in 1940 or 1944, during the Second World War. This time should be no different.”
