CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Jillian Balow has won a three-way primary for the Republican nomination for Wyoming superintendent of public instruction.

Balow, a former teacher and education official, advances to the general election against Mike Ceballos. Ceballos was unopposed in Tuesday's Democratic primary.

The current superintendent, Cindy Hill, opted to run in the GOP primary for governor. She lost to incumbent Gov. Matt Mead.

Hill's battles with Gov. Matt Mead and legislators produced upheaval in the education department. Hill was removed last year, only to be reinstated by a court this year.

Balow blames Hill for problems affecting Wyoming's public schools.
