WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., a senior member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, today met with Wilbur Ross regarding his nomination to be Secretary of Commerce under President-elect Trump.

“Mr. Ross and I discussed a variety of topics, including ways to spur economic development and create jobs” Wicker said. “After years of weak economic growth and unjustified federal regulations, American workers are ready for a resurgence. I am confident that Mr. Ross is up for that challenge. He is well-qualified to lead the Commerce Department, and I look forward to working with him to help make our economy great again.”
