Manchin Votes To Confirm Education Secretary Cardona

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), voted to confirm Dr. Miguel Cardona as U.S. Secretary of Education.

“This evening I voted to confirm Dr. Miguel Cardona as Secretary of Education. When Miguel and I met last month he pledged to assist students in rural communities across the nation to ensure they have the support needed to succeed in their education, including advocating for increased connectivity and broadband access to help close the homework gap. He is committed to working together to help our most vulnerable students by addressing student homelessness. There is no doubt in my mind that Miguel is qualified to lead our Education Department, and I look forward to working with Secretary Cardona in his new role ensuring our students and teachers have the support they need to educate the next generation of Americans.”
