MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Tony Evers says his re-election victory as state superintendent shows voters support public education and oppose efforts backed by Gov. Scott Walker to expand private school vouchers.
Evers defeated Republican state Rep. Don Pridemore, a voucher supporter, in Tuesday's election.
Evers tells The Associated Press that he believes he won because of his message for more funding for public schools and against the voucher expansion plan. Evers says he also built a broad coalition of support across the state that helped him win a second term.
The race to head the state Department of Public Instruction is nonpartisan, but Democrats and unions supported Evers. Pridemore's backing came from fellow Republicans.
The candidates differed on nearly every major issue in the race.
