A leading federal regulator appeared to signal her support for Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid at a Tuesday event near the Democratic National Convention that also featured a senior adviser to the Clinton campaign.

Federal Communications Commissioner Mignon Clyburn suggested that Clinton, not Republican rival Donald Trump, would be the next president of the United States in remarks made in her official capacity.

Clyburn, a former acting chair of the FCC, “suggested she’s ready to take a larger role if called to do so again,” according to a Communications Daily report on the event.

“I’m looking forward, whatever my title is, to working with whoever she is that will be elected soon,” Clyburn said. She then acknowledged her use of the word “she.”
