There’s been a lot of news in the state superintendent’s primary this week.

Here’s a one-stop shop where you can get caught up:

Monday: Republican incumbent Sherri Ybarra and challengers Debbie Critchfield and Branden Durst squared off in a debate, aired statewide on Idaho Public Television. Here is a full story on the debate from our Blake Jones. And click here to watch the debate.

Tuesday: A judge in King County. Wash., found Durst in contempt of court, in connection with  the candidate’s custody agreement with his ex-wife. Story from our friends at Idaho Capital Sun.

The latest in the money race: Critchfield continues to hold a big fundraising edge. Jones has this story too.

Ybarra, Critchfield and Durst met again Tuesday night, in a debate aired on KTVB. Click here to watch.

Thursday: Do you want to read where the candidates stand, in their own words? We have that covered. Here’s our questionnaire.

With six joint appearances — including two this week — the superintendents’ candidates are showing voters what they can expect. That’s how it should work. An analysis piece on the debate season.
