ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — In the nine months that Cara Mund has been Miss America, not once has she ever had to don a swimsuit as part of her duties. The reigning Miss America told The Associated Press on Tuesday night she supports the decision of the Miss America Organization to drop the swimsuit competition, starting this September. The former Miss North Dakota said Miss America is all about scholarship opportunities for young women, adding they shouldn't have to display their bodies in swimwear in order to get college assistance.
