Ex-House Speaker Brubaker resigning

     RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Harold Brubaker is leaving the North Carolina Legislature after a career that saw him become the first and only Republican House speaker of the 20th century.
 
     Brubaker most recently was the House's senior budget-writer when Republicans regained control last year.
 
     Brubaker announced Thursday he would resign his Randolph County House seat after 35 years.
 
     Brubaker told The Associated Press it's clear his work has been accomplished in the Legislature and his future career goals are outside the House.
 
     He was first elected in 1977 as one of only six Republicans in the 120-member chamber. He was elected speaker in 1995 when Republicans won the majority. He served four years as speaker.
 
     Republican leaders in Brubaker's district will pick a replacement candidate to run in the November election.
