Evers, Holtz advance
Placeholder Image
MADISON (AP) - Two-term incumbent state Superintendent Tony Evers will face former Beloit superintendent Lowell Holtz in the April 4 election to be the state's top education official, after the two longtime educators advanced in Tuesday's primary. Former Dodgeville administrator John Humphries, who tried to cast himself as more conservative than Evers but more bipartisan than Holtz, finished a distant third and was eliminated. The race to head the state Department of Public Instruction is officially nonpartisan, but Democrats and their allies back Evers while Holtz has the support of two dozen Republican lawmakers and conservative groups.
