The Grand Ol' Party says there's no party without Colorado Governor Bill Owens.
Owens is one of three top Republicans who'll be in charge of writing the party's platform at the national convention in August. He joins Senate Majority L:eader Bill Frist, who will be chairman of the platform committee.
Some speculate the move betters Owens's chances of receiving a higher position in the party.. positions like a cabinet post in the second Bush term or even a run for the Presidency.
But Owens's spokesman says the Governor has every intention of filling out his term.
