In a Facebook post Tuesday, Republican and former Colorado Governor Bill Owens called Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump a "charlatan."

In the post, Owens says the Republican Party has been "temporarily captured by a narcissist who will throw us aside after doing his best to destroy us, just as he has thrown aside so many of his properties and ventures."

He encourages Republicans to "do everything possible to hold our majorities in the US Senate, the US House, and our majorities among the Governors, State Legislatures, and yes even down to the level of County Commissioner," between now and Nov. 8.

Owens says that after the election, he believes Republicans need to rebuild at the presidential level to "once again give Americans a legitimate choice for President."
