The article goes on to state the following:

“She’s been on the field of play and made tough decisions at the highest levels,” McGahn said, before alluding to Rao’s difficult Senate nomination process. “She stood the test under pressure and adversity.”

“Earlier today at the D.C. Circuit, I had the honor of attending the investiture of Neomi Rao, a brilliant lawyer and an old friend from @UChicagoLaw. Justice Thomas, Chief Judge Garland, the honoree, and several others gave warm, funny remarks. Congratulations to Judge Rao!” Ajit Pai, the Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, tweeted.
