WASHINGTON—Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) today issued the following statement on Commissioner Joshua Wright’s last day at the FTC:
 
“While I am saddened to see the Federal Trade Commission lose a fierce advocate for consumers, I wish Commissioner Wright all the best as he returns to teaching at George Mason University. Josh has been an invaluable resource to the Commission, providing both legal and economic expertise, and in just two years has already made a lasting impact there. His shoes will be difficult to fill, but I look forward to working with his successor to build on Josh's achievements.”

Ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy, and Consumer Rights, Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), added:
 
“As FTC Commissioner, Wright demonstrated clear legal knowledge and economic know-how. It was a pleasure working with him, and I am committed to working with his successor to continue promoting competition and protecting consumers.”
