“She’s been on the field of play and made tough decisions at the highest levels,” McGahn said, before alluding to Rao’s difficult Senate nomination process. “She stood the test under pressure and adversity.”

“Earlier today at the D.C. Circuit, I had the honor of attending the investiture of Neomi Rao, a brilliant lawyer and an old friend from @UChicagoLaw.

Congratulations to Judge Rao!” Ajit Pai, the Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, tweeted.
