MADISON (AP) - Incumbent state Superintendent Tony Evers cruised to re-election Tuesday, easily ousting challenger Lowell Holtz on his way to a third term as Wisconsin's top education official. The win keeps Evers in place as the only Democratic-backed statewide official in a meaningful office. Even though the race is officially nonpartisan, Evers had strong support from Democrats along with state and national teachers' unions who favored his positions in support of increased funding for public schools and opposition to private school vouchers.
