Sen. Duckworth Sounds Off On President Trump's Cabinet Picks
WASHINGTON, DC (WICS) —
Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth issuing a statement that she will not support DeVos' nomination.
Saying, in part;
"After reviewing Ms. DeVos' record and recent senate testimony, it is abundantly clear that she lacks the necessary experience and expertise that every Secretary of Education must possess, coming up short in two particular areas: Her commitment to public education and her understanding of our nation's civil rights laws."
Duckworth saying, she also voted against Rick Perry’s nomination for Energy Secretary and Congressman Ryan Zinke's nomination for Secretary of Interior.
She says she plans on opposing Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State, Senator Jeff Sessions for Attorney General, and Congressman Tom Price for Health and Human Services Secretary.
