Counting the votes and checking the names

First, congratulations to Rose Fernandez and her campaign team. Despite being outspent by a wide margin, she advances to the general election for State Superintendent of Public Instruction. With 94% of the vote reporting:

Tony Evers 83,768 35%
Rose Fernandez 73,912 31%
Van Mobley 31,982 14%
Todd Price 26,637 11%
Lowell Holtz 20,593 9%

Congratulations, too, to Michael Mathias in the MPS district 4 school board race. Mike also advances to the general election while incumbent Charlene Hardin failed in her write-in campaign.
