Just one vote.  That is ALL that is needed to stop Betsy DeVos from controlling public education in the entire United States.

And Senator Richard Shelby has that vote.

Here is his number in Washington. 202-224-5744  When the call is answered, be short and courteous.  Tell his office who you are and where you live and your zip code.  Tell them you do not need a response and that you are requesting that Senator Shelby vote against Betsy DeVos to be U.S. Secretary of Education.

That’s it.  Be short and sweet and to the point.

Here’s why this is so IMPORTANT.

Right now the vote to confirm DeVos, who surely is the most unqualified person ever nominated to this position, is tied at 50-50.  This means Vice-President Mike Pence can break the tie.  And his vote is a slam dunk for DeVos.

So if Senator Shelby votes against her, she is rejected on a 50-49 vote count.

I’ve made my call.  Now you make yours.  202-224-5744.
