Must watch video: Democrat legislator’s impassioned speech for school choice

Robert Fellner

Justin Wayne, a Democrat state senator from Nebraska, has a message for his fellow democrats who are unwilling to support school choice:

Hopefully, Nevada Democrats follow his lead sooner, rather than later.
