Supt candidates on 'turning over every rock' to find more money for schools

Incumbent state Supt. Tom Luna said he went to the state Land Board for more money for schools "when everybody else threw up their hands." He said, "I fought that battle and in many ways fought it alone, and we were successful in getting $22 million. I still think there's $30 million that could have been distributed. ... I'll continue to turn over every rock, I'll shake every tree."

Olson responded, "The problem with the rock turning ... is that it's all 11th-hour and 59th minute. My question is, Where were you three years ago and four years ago?"
