Former Gov. Jim Holshouser dies

Former Gov. Jim Holshouser died Monday after a prolonged illness. He was 78.
He was North Carolina's first Republican governor of the 20th century, winning a surprising election during the 1972 GOP sweep lead by President Richard Nixon.
Part of Holshouser's legacy was the state kindergarten program, the Coastal Area Management Act, and rural area health centers.
