More than 1.3 million Hoosier voters helped put Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz in office in 2012. As the only Democrat to currently hold statewide office, Ritz has had an uphill battle ever since.
Buffeted at seemingly every turn by Republican Gov. Mike Pence and an Indiana General Assembly with GOP super-majorities in both chambers, Ritz has had her share of well-documented clashes with state leaders while attempting to carry out her mandate from the voters to improve the state of education in Indiana.
