Senator Rob Portman of Ohio announced that he would vote for DeVos but the Cleveland Plain-Dealer urges him to take a stand and vote no.

“Sen. Rob Portman, who just got a huge vote of confidence from the people of Ohio for his re-election, now owes it to the citizens of this state to do the right thing and vote against Betsy DeVos for education secretary — even if it means crossing President Donald Trump, who nominated her.

“As became manifestly clear in DeVos’ confirmation hearing, she has no qualifications even remotely suited to the job.

“Portman has a rare opportunity to show that he will be an independent thinker, not a party hack, and to save the country from a terrible choice.”
