The squeaker in the statewide returns from Tuesday’s election in Idaho was the contest for state superintendent of public instruction. The position rarely makes the holder a household name. But as correspondent Jessica Robinson reports, it's an office that's expected to play a key role in Idaho over the next several years.

Republican Sherri Ybarra’s margin of victory was just over 1 percent. She’s currently the curriculum director in the Mountain Home district. Ybarra says her first step will be getting a crash course from outgoing state schools chief, Tom Luna.
