Denver (AP) - Former Gov. Bill Owens' three children are inviting people to a meet-and-greet for Former Republican Congressman Scott McInnis, who's thinking about running for governor.

Monica, Mark and Brett Owens are among the hosts for a gathering of young professionals Tuesday at the Blue Bonnet Mexican Restaurant in Denver.

Monica Owens told The Denver Post that she and her mother, Frances Owens, are supporting McInnis. She says her father, a former two-term GOP governor, is staying neutral for now.

McInnis served in the U.S. House for six terms. He and a fellow west slope republican, State Sen. Josh Penry, have expressed interest running for governor next year.

Democratic Gov. Bill Ritter is expected to seek a second term.

Owens was first elected governor in 1998.
