Evers, Holtz advance to superintendent race

Lowell Holtz

The field of candidates running for superintendent of Wisconsin's public schools will be narrowed in Tuesday's primary, with incumbent Tony Evers facing two challengers who have been sidetracked trying to explain allegations that they discussed working together to beat him. Here are some questions and answers about the race.

Less than a week before the primary, Humphries admitted in a February 15 interview with the Wisconsin State Journal that he had made an agreement with Holtz to collaborate to defeat Evers.

American men are tipped to surpass 79.5 years, and women 83.3 years by 2030. "Otherwise we are just growing old as patients". The prediction is both a blessing and a burden as more of us can look forward to getting the most out of our golden years.

In Dane County, the incumbent saw an 88 percent lead over Lowell Holtz and John Humphries. There's only one statewide race on the ballot - a three way primary for state Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Historically, the spring primary is Wisconsin's lowest-turnout election.

That is certainly going to be our objective. "Plenty of reasons to feel we can do a good job". "I think you never know". They have explained to me how the vehicle is working, how big the development rate is for us.

"The real winners tonight are Wisconsin's 860,000 public school kids", Evers said in a statement. Holtz, a former Cambridge Elementary School principal who branded himself as "kidservative", touted the fact that he was the only one of the three candidates who did not sign the petition to recall GOP Gov. Scott Walker from office in 2012. Holtz is calling for better discipline in schools to make classrooms more safe and secure. Humphries said he rejected the alleged deal as ludicrous. He also wants to increase local control and empower teachers.

Evers is backed by the Wisconsin School Administrators Alliance, the American Federation of Teachers and the Wisconsin Education Association Council. His support comes from Democrats, teachers unions and other public school advocates. In addition to Republican groups, conservative advocacy group Wisconsin Family Action endorsed Holtz in the primary.
