Collins not sold on DeVos as education secretary

In today's Portland Press Herald, I report on Sen. Susan Collins', R-Maine, having cautioned she may not support President Donald Trump's controversial nominee for education secretary, Betsy DeVos, though she did vote to send her candidacy out of committee.

Collins was joined by fellow Republican Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. She also revealed an exchange of letters with DeVos in which the nominee pledged not to impose school vouchers -- a penchant of hers -- on any state or school district.

Details herein.

Maine's other senator, Independent Angus King, has already said he will oppose DeVos. I wrote about the education secretary in the Press Herald recently here.
