Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D. ND)
If you don’t think the Resistance is working, think again:
Of the 1,400 people who’ve contacted Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) to share their opinions on Betsy DeVos, the woman President Donald Trump has tapped to lead the Department of Education despite her curious lack of professional experience, approximately 1,330 of them opposed her confirmation. Don’t ask DeVos to calculate it, but that’s 95 percent.
Sen. Heitkamp has heard their voices. Earlier this morning, she announced that she could not support DeVos and would vote against her confirmation. She shared three statements on Twitter from three women in North Dakota, expressing their concern over DeVos’ apparent “disregard for students with disabilities” and “half-hearted approach” to understanding how public education works nationwide: “We expect and request better for our children.”
She may not vote the way want all the time but if she keeps hearing this more and more, she will. If you’re an ND Kossack or know folks in North Dakota, get them to keep filling her inbox to obstruct, especially when it comes to the upcoming SCOTUS fight. Click here to contact her office.
