What You Need to Know About Trump’s Possible FTC Pick

Attorney General Sean Reyes (R-UT) is called a "rising Republican star," and has experience with media and technology.

On Tuesday afternoon, Politico reported President-elect Donald Trump may be settling on a chair for the Federal Trade Commission (FTC):

President-elect Donald Trump is considering tapping Sean Reyes, the attorney general of Utah, as the next chairman of the FTC, according to two sources with knowledge of the matter.

Politico called Reyes a “rising Republican star,” and noted that – before becoming attorney general – he “served as general counsel for eTAGZ, a local media and technology company” in Utah.

Reyes was a “vocal” supporter of Donald Trump during the campaign, even as many Republicans in Utah supported Evan McMullin.

Reyes’ bio notes that he has won praise “from both sides of the aisle” for protecting children, consumers, and business owners in Utah.

The FTC works to “prevent business practices that are anticompetitive or deceptive or unfair to consumers.” Their strategic goals are to “Protect Consumers,” “Maintain Competition,” and “Advance Performance.”
