Let’s not forget that DeVos has racked up quite the resume of not-so-great policy positions. Last year, she proposed eliminating federal funding for the Special Olympics (yes, really). It was such a terrible proposition that even Trump himself was against it (yes, really). Under her leadership, the U.S. Department of Education has considered letting states use federal funding to buy guns for teachers, and she’s also backed policies that would make it safer to commit sexual assault on campus without repercussion. Meanwhile, Pressley’s consistently used her position in Congress to advance rights for women, people of color, and educate the next generation.
