Senator Claire McCaskill
Betsy DeVos is the wrong choice for Missouri, and anyone who voted for her today gave our rural communities the back of their hand.
Claire stood up for small towns across Missouri today by voting NO on Ms. DeVos, and she’s going to fight tooth and nail to protect Missouri’s schools…
Well, actually, those who voted to confirm Betsy DeVos today voted to give all of our public school students, all of our public schools, and all of our communities, wherever they’re located, the back of their hand.
That’s one (February 1, 2017)
