Incumbent Evers advances easily in schools race

Former Beloit superintendent and 1999 principal of the year Lowell Holtz has advanced in the race for state superintendent.

Tony Evers says his work is a long way from finished. They will face each other in the April 4 general election.

Holtz campaigned on being a more experienced educator and clear conservative. Holtz has the support of Pro-Life Wisconsin, Wisconsin Family Action and two dozen Republican lawmakers.

While the office is technically nonpartisan, Evers commonly aligns with the state's Democrats and his financial backers include teacher and administrator unions across the state. Evers garnered 609 votes; Holtz earned 161; Humphries 42; and there was one write-in.

Evers, the two-term incumbent, received the most votes by far in Tuesday's primary, with Holtz - a former school superintendent - finishing a distant second.

Polls are closed across Wisconsin in the race for state superintendent.

Turnout for this spring primary is expected to be low.

"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. Holtz is calling for better discipline in schools to make classrooms more safe and secure.

"I kind of put it on his being strict and not wishy-washy", Glass said.

In the liberal stronghold of Madison, several voters in Evers' home district were supporting him for another term.
