The FCC is not a place for partisan activists; free speech is too important.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Texas Insider Report) — U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), a member of both the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and Ranking Republican Member on the Senate Commerce Committee, made the following statements earlier today on the announced agreement between Japan and the Republic of Korea, as well as on the withdrawal of President Biden's nominee to sit on the Federal Communications Commission.

Said Sen. Cruz regarding the agreement between Japan and the Republic of Korea:
 
“This announcement is an important and heartening development, with direct implications for the national security of America and our allies. The resolution of this dispute between our Japanese and South Korean allies will foster more effective enduring partnerships at this critical moment for the region.

"I applaud Prime Minister Kishida and President Yoon for their work to reach this significant milestone.”

 
And on Gigi Sohn withdrawing her name as Mr. Biden's nominee for the Federal Communications Commission, Cruz said:

As the Senate Commerce Committee Ranking Member, Senator Cruz issued the following statement after Gigi Sohn withdrew her nomination by President Biden to sit on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC):
 
“The withdrawal of Ms. Sohn’s nomination is a major victory and represents a strong bipartisan agreement that we need a fair and impartial candidate who can receive the support needed for confirmation.

"The FCC is not a place for partisan activists; free speech is too important. Now, it’s time for the Biden administration to put forth a nominee who can be confirmed by the full Senate and is committed to serving as an even-handed and truly independent regulator,” said Cruz.
