BREAKING: Betsy DeVos Confirmed in Historic Tie Breaking Vote by VP Pence

2001

In the history of the United States, a vice president has never been forced to cast the tie breaking vote in a senate confirmation. That changed this afternoon when Vice President Pence voted in favor of the new education secretary, Betsy DeVos.

DeVos has been one of the Trump administration’s most polarizing cabinet picks.

The Senate approved Ms. DeVos in a 51-50 vote, with solely Republican support. All 46 Senate Democrats, the chamber’s two independents and two Republicans—Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska—voted no.

 

It is unusual for a presidential-cabinet pick, let alone an education-secretary nominee, to face the kind of opposition Ms. DeVos faced. But her nomination became a proxy for a broader debate over how best to improve public schools across the U.S.
