Republican State Superintendent Candidate Voted In Democratic Primary
The party loyalty of a Republican candidate for state education superintendent is being questioned because she cast a vote in the 2012 Indiana Democratic primary. Jennifer McCormick, the Yorktown superintendent of schools, defended her voting record, noting that she cast a Republican ballot in the more recent 2014 primary election. "To me it’s not about politics, it’s about students," McCormick told the Indianapolis Star. McCormick is opposed for the nomination by a Fort Wayne resident, Dawn Wooten, who is an adjunct professor at IPFW, Indiana Tech and the University of Saint Francis Delegates elected to this year's Indiana Republican State Convention delegates will choose the Republican nominee for state education superintendent in June.
