Welcome to D.C., Ms. Ravel

Bloomberg BNA:

Ann Ravel, the new Democratic commissioner on the Federal Election Commission, has said she would not have taken the job if she had not been an optimist. A few weeks spent at the often-divided FEC, however, may have dimmed her outlook somewhat, Ravel told Bloomberg BNA in a Dec. 4 interview.

Ravel said she found the level of partisan division at the FEC “very surprising” after arriving in late October from her previous post as head of California’s campaign finance and ethics agency, the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC).
