TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A retired Wichita school administrator hopes to oust a Republican from the State Board of Education in Kansas' primary elections.
And in another state school board race Tuesday, Democrats were picking their nominee for a district covering northeast and north central Kansas.
They were the only contested primary races for State Board of Education seats.
In the Wichita contest, incumbent Republican Walt Chappell faces Kathy Busch, a retired assistant superintendent and principal. No Democratic candidate is running.
In the other race, Usha Reddi, a Manhattan first-grade teacher, and Carol Viar,, a Salina accountant and member of a local school board, are seeking the Democratic nomination. The winner faces former Republican House member Deena Horst, of Salina, in November.
