GOP candidates lead in state education races

Final results were unavailable for the 3rd Congressional District seat on the Colorado Board of Education with 19 of 29 counties in the district reporting as of 12:15 a.m.
Joyce Rankin, the Republican incumbent, was leading her opponent, Democrat Christine Pacheco-Koveleski, with almost 59 percent of the vote.
The board has a strong agenda over the coming year, including hiring a new education commissioner, working with the school districts and schools that have been considered failing five years in a row on the accountability clock and integrating the new Every Student Succeeds Act into Colorado’s education system.
In the race for the at-large seat on the University of Colorado’s Board of Regents, Republican Heidi Ganahl was leading with 52 percent of the vote with 39 of 64 counties reporting as of 12:15 a.m.
Her opponent, Democrat Alice Madden, had received 48 percent of the vote at that time.
The Board of Regents is dealing with tightening budgets as state funds decrease, decreasing student debt and increasing graduation rates as well as a potential search for a new CU president in the coming years as the current president, Bruce D. Benson, is 78.
