Booker, Menendez speeches against Trump Cabinet picks — NJ Decoded
New Jersey's United States senators took part in their party's through-the-night speech marathons opposed to some of President Donald Trump's Cabinet nominations.

Earlier in the week, Booker similarly spoke against the nomination of Betsy De Vos as secretary of the Department of Education. She was approved 51-50, with Vice President Mike Pence casting the tie-breaking vote.
Here's the video from Sen. Robert Menendez speaking against De Vos' nomination.
