Owen's Family Reconciliation

By  | 

Governor Owens has returned to his family after a 20-month separation from his wife, Frances.

Owens' spokesman, Dan Hopkins, says the family is back together at their home in Centennial for Mother's Day.

The governor issued a statement saying he and his wife will continue to work out their differences.

The separation had been seen as a blow to Owens' political ambitions.

Pollster Floyd Ciruli says the reconciliation will make little difference in Owens' political career now because he has less than two years left in his term and is term-limited.

Owens has said he would like to work in the business community after he leaves office and has no plans to run for another public office.

Ciruli said a reconciliation could pave the way if Owens decides to run for office in the future.
