Luna gaffe: 'What I thought I said'

At a press conference after the public school budget vote, state Superintendent of Schools Tom Luna misspoke, accidentally telling reporters, "No one wants to cut education more than me." When his press secretary corrected him a moment later, Luna said, "That's what I thought I said," then stumbled over the words again, amid laughter, finally declaring, "I don't want to cut public education." You can watch the video here at Times-News reporter Jared Hopkins' blog, "Capitol Confidential."
