NORTHWOODS - The two incumbents running for statewide office held onto their seats Tuesday night.

Tony Evers claimed another term as State Superintendent of Public Instruction, while Pat Roggensack will be back for ten more years on the state Supreme Court.

Locally, Merrill attorney Rob Russell appeared to win a close race versus incumbent John Yackel for Lincoln County Circuit Court Judge.

Each of the three local general revenue school referenda were quite close.

As of late Tuesday night, Phillips denied a referendum by just seven votes, while Wabeno Area also voted down more money.

Elcho, meanwhile, approved $400,000 per year in additional spending.

One of the sessions was at the Eagle River library Monday. Some people brought up the poor road conditions in the area. Tiffany says transportation funding is one of the items he will be looking at closely in the upcoming budget.
