Betsy DeVos has been confirmed as the education secretary. The votes just came in and there was a 50-50 tie. Vice President Mike Pence had to cast a vote to break the tie. This is a historic moment in American history. A President has never had to do this before.
Pence cast the vote in favor of the new Education Secretary, Elisabeth DeVos. Senator Chuck Shumer tweeted moments later. He said that the nominee pick was so bad, that VP Pence had to drive down Pennsylvania Ave to vote.
All we can do now is accept it and see what happens in education. It looks like President Trump will get his whole cabinet going forward.
