Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the confirmation of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education:

"President Trump has assembled a first-class team for his Cabinet, and obstructing all of these confirmation votes is only delaying the important work that needs to be done. In my conversation with Betsy DeVos, I found her to have a deep appreciation for the value of public schools and a special concern for the needs of the disadvantaged. I have every expectation she'll return power to Arkansas parents, as I've long advocated for."
