Sen. Angus King will oppose Betsy DeVos's confirmation

In breaking news, Sen. Angus King (I-Maine), told me yesterday afternoon that he won't be supporting President Trump's choice for education secretary, Betsy DeVos. The office of Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) didn't respond to inquires about her position on DeVos. The story is in today's Portland Press Herald.

Last month I wrote about what Maine might expect from a DeVos-run education department. She was also a member of the board of Jeb Bush's education foundation, which was at the center of this 2012 investigation, which won a George Polk Award.

That is all.
