Former North Carolina Governor Jim Holshouser was laid to rest today. He died this week at age 78 in a state very different from the one he governed 4 decades ago.
His Republican Party has changed a lot too. Congressman Howard Coble served in Holshouser's cabinet. "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."
