Senator Braun released the following statement on his vote against Dr. Miguel Cardona as Secretary of Education: 

“While building my business in my hometown I served on the local school board for 10 years, and I cannot support Dr. Cardona as Secretary of Education because I believe in school choice, which President Biden has vowed to work against. Competition is the key to innovation, and when parents have more choices and students have more opportunities available to them, our education system and our country is stronger for it.” – Senator Mike Braun
