A Senate panel is scheduled to vote today on Donald Trump's nominee for Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos. On Saturday, there was a demonstration of protest against DeVos in her hometown, which is also my hometown, Holland, Michigan. The Daily Kos reported the crowd that marched around the perimeter of Centennial Park, Holland's public square, numbered more than 1,500: "March against Betsy DeVos in her hometown exceeds expectations."
Holland is located in southwestern Michigan, in Ottawa County, which, according to 24/7 Wall St, is the most Republican county in Michigan.

Update: An hour or so ago, the Chicago Tribune reported that the Health, Education, Pensions and Labor Committee "voted 12-11 along partisan lines" to support DeVos's nomination. It now goes to the full Senate for action.
