Governor Mike Pence in August created an entirely new state agency that some have described as a shadow Department of Education. Ritz's recent battles with the GOP nominees to the State Board of Education have been extremely public.
Need teachers and their supporters remind Governor Pence what happened in 2012? Glenda Ritz, with little campaign cash and name recognition, somehow took down the well-financed and heavily-favored Tony Bennett. In the process, she got more votes than Governor Pence did in his race against John Gregg and Rupert Boneham.
I guess that whole election was way too long ago for them to actually remember. I guarantee that Ritz's supporters haven't forgotten and are ready to send more government officials packing, if necessary.
