More moderating forces have prevailed recently, though the “nonpartisan” board remains controlled by a majority of conservative Republicans. The board could shift further to the right, however, if efforts by a conservative minister, Robert “Bob” Divine, to elect himself and his son, Robert Brian Divine, prevail.
