Diane Douglas beat pro-Common Core incumbent Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal in convincing fashion 57.78% to 41.50% winning over 66,000 more votes according to the Arizona Secretary of State’s office.
The barbarians at the gate crashed through evidently.
Huppenthal is the third incumbent state school chief to go down in flames over supporting the Common Core State Standards.
Indiana’s Tony Bennett was first losing his general election race to Glenda Ritz. In Oklahoma incumbent school chief Janet Barressi came in third, completely trounced by Joy Hofmeister who won her primary on an anti-Common Core message.
Barbarians 3, Educrats 0.
