The Senate agreed by a vote of 58-42 to move to a vote on the DeVos nomination. Two Republican senators will vote against her. Unless one Republican breaks ranks, the vote will be 50-50, and VP Pence will cast a tie-breaking vote for her.

Public reaction has been intense and negative. Senator Toomey’s office received 8,000 faxes against DeVos in one hour.
