#AceNewsReport – Feb.07: The Senate confirmed Elisabeth DeVos as Education secretary by a 51-50 vote, after Vice President Mike Pence cast the tie-breaker, allowing the Trump administration to overcome two GOP votes against her Fox News just reported …

Democrats’ effort got under way as the Senate headed toward a showdown vote Tuesday on Education Secretary nominee Betsy DeVos, a wealthy GOP donor who has advocated for alternatives to public education. DeVos’ nomination has drawn particularly fierce opposition from teachers’ unions and others.

Two GOP senators have announced plans to oppose her, which could result in a 50-50 Senate vote Tuesday. That would leave Vice President Mike Pence in the role of tie-breaker, something that has never happened with a Cabinet nominee in the Senate’s history, according to the Senate historian.
