Austin, TX -- After millions of patriots voiced their deep concerns about the values, conflicts of interests, and lack of qualifications of Betsy DeVos, Senate Republicans, including Texas’ Ted Cruz and John Cornyn, voted today to confirm her as Donald Trump’s Secretary of Education.
Texas Democratic Party Deputy Executive Director Manny Garcia issued the following statement:
“Texas’ own Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz have again ignored the voices of thousands of Texans only to rubber stamp Trump’s disastrous wishes.
“Senators Cruz and Cornyn will pay a price for this, they simply cannot duck and cover from their constituents forever.
“The fight to save our children’s education from the Trump Republican administration has only just begun.
“Texas Democrats know our children deserve a world-class education and strong neighborhood schools, we will not stop until every Texan has a fair shot to get ahead.”
