Ronna Romney McDaniel Comments on the Education Secretary Confirmation Hearing for Betsy DeVos

LANSING, MI, Jan. 17, 2017 – Michigan Republican Party Chairman Ronna Romney McDaniel made the following comments regarding Betsy DeVos’ hearing in front of the Senate Education Committee:

“It is very clear that Secretary-designate Betsy DeVos is a qualified and a bold choice who puts the needs of students and parents first. DeVos’ past support for public education and parental school choice and her record of accomplishment is outstanding,” stated Chairman McDaniel. “Her career has been spent advocating for putting students first, standing up to the status quo that allows too many kids to fall through the cracks, and advocating for disadvantaged children. I am proud to support Betsy DeVos’ confirmation and I hope the Senate will move quickly to fulfill this appointment.”
