Two Republican Senators Put Confirmation of GR’s Betsy DeVos’ in Jeopardy
Two Republican senators have announced their opposition to Betsy DeVos, which could put the confirmation of the Grand Rapids socialite as Education Secretary in Jeopardy.
Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska both say they won't support DeVos.
If she gets the support of all other Republican Senators, and is opposed by all Democrats, she would end of with a 50-50 split. Mike Pence would then cast the tie-breaking vote.
