Two GOP senators say ‘no’ to DeVos


Two Republican senators — Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska will vote “no” on confirming Betsy Devos as Education secretary, even though both voted for her in the education committee.

If all Democrats vote against DeVos, which is expected, the nominee would need to hold all the remaining Republican senators to end up in a 50-50 tie. Vice President Mike Pence would cast the deciding vote.
