DNC: Voters Will Hold Heller, Flake, GOP Accountable for DeVos Confirmation

WASHINGTON – Senate Republicans voted today to confirm Betsy DeVos as Donald Trump’s Secretary of Education. DNC Interim Chair Donna Brazile released the following statement:

“President Trump’s swamp got a new billionaire today. Millions of teachers, parents and students could not have made their opposition to Betsy Devos’s confirmation any clearer – they do not want someone whose only education experience is dismantling public schools. A Republican senator like Dean Heller or Jeff Flake could have cast the single vote needed to halt this confirmation. Instead, their constituents in states like Nevada and Arizona will cast their votes next year to kick them out of office for selling out their state’s public school children.”
