The best senators money can buy … almost

Billionaire Betsy DeVos (R-Amway and Blackwater), the newly confirmed education secretary who hates public education, and her family made a few investments in the U.S. Senate to high profile names in the Republican Party. Her confirmation hinged on Vice President Pence casting the deciding vote. Two Republican senators voted against her: Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

The above list shows the amount of the money the DeVos family donated to Republicans in the last cycle, according to Federal Election Commission filings. It’s safe to say that Lisa’s campaign is going to be short $43,200 the next go round.
