Democrats will try again Thursday to advance President Joe Biden’s choice for the Federal Communications Commission over objections from Republicans.

Gigi Sohn, a communications lawyer who has drawn GOP opposition in part for criticizing Fox News, is set to be considered by the Senate Commerce Committee. An earlier vote was postponed after a Democratic senator fell ill.
