After President Donald Trump’s controversial education secretary nominee, Betsy DeVos, was confirmed Tuesday morning, protesters gathered outside of Colorado Republican Sen. Cory Gardner’s downtown Denver office.

While two Republican senators defected to oppose DeVos, Gardner was not one of them, despite demonstrations by teachers, parents and education advocates urging him to vote against DeVos. The 50-50 tie in the Senate was broke by Vice President Mike Pence.

Unsurprisingly, Colorado Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet voted no after he joined his Democratic colleagues in a 24-hour speech-a-thon in opposition to DeVos that ran from noon Monday to noon Tuesday.
