President Trump has withdrawn the nomination of former Federal Communications Commission Democrat Jessica Rosenworcel.

The withdrawal was listed Tuesday on the U.S. Senate website.

Her renomination had been announced by former President Barack Obama in January just weeks before leaving office. It was the second time Obama tried to cue Rosenworcel for a new five-year term.

He had already renominated her during the 114th Congress, but it was never taken up by the Republican-controlled Senate. Her term expired July 1, 2015, but according to the Senate Commerce Committee, she was allowed to “remain in her current role as commissioner until Dec. 31, 2016 while awaiting Senate confirmation for a second term.”
