Former Governor Dies at 65

Sad news out of South Carolina tonight. Former governor Carroll Campbell died today in Columbia. The Republican served two terms as governor from 1987 to 1995. Gov. Campbell also served in the United States House of Representatives from 1979 until he was elected governor.

Campbell had suffered from Alzheimer's disease, which he made public in 2001. He was moved into a residential care facility in August where he died this morning.

The Hon. Carroll Campbell was 65 years old.
