Biden Pick To Run FCC Withdraws Nomination After Sen. Manchin Opposes

Published on

The White House confirmed Tuesday that President Biden’s choice to lead the Federal Communications Commission was removed from consideration.

Gigi Sohn was first nominated by the White House in October 2021. The Washington Post reported that her decision was in response to “unrelenting and dishonest attacks” by cable and media industry lobbyists.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) stated Tuesday that he wouldn’t support Sohn’s confirmation.

Karine Jean-Pierre, White House press secretary, said Tuesday that “We appreciate Gigi’s candidacy to this important role.” She would have brought great intellect and experience. That is why she was nominated by the president in the first instance. We appreciated her dedication and commitment to public service, her talent, and her many years of work as a leading advocate for American consumers and competition.
