Rosenworcel, a Democrat, previously served as FCC commissioner from 2012 to January 2017. President Barack Obama had nominated her for another term shortly before he left office, but her position was not confirmed. "We commend this nomination by President Trump and look forward to continuing to work with her on the Commission". Some speculated Wheeler would stay on through the end of his term to block Trump's ability to appoint a Republican majority at the agency.
Industry and congressional officials also expect Trump to nominate Brendan Carr, a Republican who is now general counsel at the FCC and an adviser to Pai, to an open seat. But if Democrat Mignon Clyburn exits-her term is up at the end of June but she could serve until the end of 2018, the FCC will lack a quorum to vote on items.
But there have been increased rumblings in DC circles that she's looking to leave at the end of June.
That's one possible reason for Rosenworcel's nomination, since Trump wouldn't want to tie the agency's hands with a 2-2 majority that would block Republicans from repealing net neutrality rules.
Trump announced his intention to nominate Rosenworcel late Tuesday, and Pai was quick to voice his support for the move. Pai is reportedly considering Brendan Carr, now the acting FCC general counsel and a former staffer in Pai's office.
Usually presidents nominate Republican and Democratic candidates for the FCC in tandem to boost their chances of approval by an increasingly partisan Senate.
