Although she may not have made the biggest splash at last week’s Republican State Convention, state superintendent’s candidate Sherri Ybarra felt motivated by the experience. Ybarra attended less than half the convention, which ultimately broke down Saturday amidst intraparty squabbles, without any business accomplished. But in her first convention, Ybarra said she accomplished her three main goals. She hoped to meet fellow Republicans, talk to them about the state of education and raise campaign funds. “I think I accomplished all those,” she said. “I did raise some money and met people and heard their concerns.” Ybarra raised just $3,150.14 between Jan. 1 and May 30 – with just $300 of that coming in the weeks leading up to the primary/Clark Corbin, IdahoED NEWS.

Question: Will the fractured Idaho GOP embrace its Superintendent of Schools nominee (especially if she supports decent funding of public education)?
