State Superintendent candidate Pridemore claims no blacklisting of reporters

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A candidate for state school superintendent says he is not blacklisting reporters.

Assembly Republican Don Pridemore said a former aide misinterpreted comments he made about five journalists – and all he wanted to do was talk directly to them when they call, and not let staffers speak on his behalf.

Pridemore said comments he made to the 5 reporters were misconstrued in the past. They’re from newspapers and their Web sites in Madison and Milwaukee, plus an AP reporter.

Pridemore is running against incumbent state Superintendent Tony Evers in an election two weeks from Tuesday.

Pridemore said the staffer in question resigned two months ago.
