Horne to stress classroom rigor

PHOENIX – Republican Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Horne won re-election over Democrat Jason Williams Tuesday.

Horne, a former attorney, won more than 50 percent of the vote.

Horne ran on a campaign pledge to improve teachers’ salaries and increase academic rigor in the classroom. Williams had made childhood literacy a key plank in his platform.

● Republican Secretary of State Jan Brewer romped to re-election over Democrat Israel Torres by a nearly 3-to-2 margin.

She made fighting voter fraud a priority. She supports requiring voters to show government-issued photo ID or two forms of specified nonphoto ID when casting ballots.

Torres, an organizational consultant, pledged to oversee reform of elections, lobbying and identity theft protection.

● Democratic Attorney General Terry Goddard won a second term, handily defeating Republican Bill Montgomery by a 3-to-2 margin.

Goddard promised to continue focusing on consumer protection from identity theft and methamphetamine trafficking.

● Republican state Sen. Dean Martin received more than 56 percent of the vote in beating Democrat Rano Singh in a race to succeed incumbent state treasurer David Petersen, who pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor of failing to report $4,200 in commissions from selling character education materials to schools.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
