GOP senators back Bowles to head UNC system (ROB CHRISTENSEN, 4/05/05, News & Observer)

Republicans in the state Senate, of all people, are lobbying to make Bill Clinton's former chief of staff, Erskine Bowles, the next president of the University of North Carolina system.

The Senate GOP caucus has written to state leaders saying the next time there is a change in the UNC presidency, "we would strongly support Mr. Erskine Bowles for the position."

Apparently the GOP is floating the name of Bowles, a two-time Democratic Senate candidate and Charlotte investment banker, as a way to send a message to President Molly Broad.
