Colorado Reacts to Betsy DeVos Confirmation as Secretary of Education
It has been perhaps the most talked about Cabinet position, and this afternoon Vice President Mike Pence cast the tie-breaking vote to confirm Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education. The controversy surrounding President Trump’s pick for Secretary of Education has been brewing for the last couple weeks following DeVos’ confirmation hearings. You can watch it below.
Since much of the nation is reacting to the confirmation of DeVos, I wanted to see how Colorado was reacting on Twitter to the news that she had been confirmed. Full disclosure, the hashtags I searched under were #COpolitics I also looked at mentions under the Senators who voted for and against the nominee (@SenBennetCo and @SenCoryGardner). This story is fluid, so while the majority of comments I found initially following the vote were negative, it wasn’t for lack of trying, but rather availability. If you have come across positive reactions, or if you are hopeful for this appointment and would like your opinion known, please contact me.
