Holshouser in hospital

Former Gov. Jim Holshouser did not make the inauguration Saturday of Gov. Pat McCrory because he was in the hospital, according to former Lt. Gov. Jim Gardner.
Holshouser, now 78, was the first Republican governor of the modern era, having been elected in 1972. He now practices law in Southern Pines.
Other governors at the event were Democrats Bev Perdue and Mike Easley and Republican Jim Martin.
Democrat Jim Hunt was not present, but he met privately with McCrory on Thursday.
