A Path Toward a Fully Functioning FEC
U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell released the following statement Thursday regarding Matthew Petersen, a nominee for the Federal Election Commission:
"The White House acted quickly in nominating Matthew Petersen to fill the sixth and final slot on the Federal Election Commission. This prompt action provides a path toward seating a fully functioning, bipartisan commission. I appreciate the promise of the Majority Leader for a speedy review of Mr. Petersen's record and look forward to his swift and successful confirmation.
"While we'll miss his counsel on the Rules Committee, Matthew Petersen is an outstanding choice for the FEC."
