According to the article, candidates Lowell Holz and John Humphries, who are vying to challenge State  Superintendent Tony Evers, discussed ideas whereby one would drop out of the race in exchange for a taxpayer-funded $150,000 job within the Department of Public Instruction should one of them defeat Evers in the general election April 4. The primary election is Tuesday, February 21.

The WEAC Board is recommending the re-election of Evers.
