Evers, Holtz advance in state superintendent race
As expected there was a low voter turnout in Fond du Lac County for the primary election Tuesday.
Consultant John Humphries and former Beloit Superintendent Lowell Holtz are challenging Evers, with the two highest vote-getters in the primary advancing to the April 4 general election.
In a statement, Evers said the real winners following the primary are the state's 860,000 public school students.
"Absolutely not", says Evers, who has led Wisconsin schools for the last eight years. The primary for state superintendent of schools is the only statewide race on the ballot Tuesday.
But Holtz is betting his conservative credentials will gain him enough to support to unseat Evers. Holtz has the support of Pro-Life Wisconsin, Wisconsin Family Action and two dozen Republican lawmakers.
The victor will oversee the Department of Public Instruction, which runs K-12 education policy, curriculum and programs, and administers state and federal aid for all 424 public school districts.

"People in the state value trustworthiness and truthfulness and integrity and I thought both of my opponents in the last couple of days did not show that", Evers said.
The field of candidates running for Wisconsin state superintendent is being narrowed. Holtz was garnering more support from Republicans as he was the only one of the three who did not sign the petition in 2012 to recall Gov. Scott Walker from office. I really believe in local control.
