He died this week at age 78 in a state very different from the one he governed 4 decades ago.</p><p>His Republican Party has changed a lot too.&nbsp; <a href="http://coble.house.gov/">Congressman Howard Coble</a> served in Holshouser's cabinet.&nbsp; "I think he was concerned in enlarging our tent," Coble told host Frank Stasio on The State of Things. "We have some folks in our party who would like to build a barrier around the tent and permit only those who agree identically with every issue, and that's not practical."
