An environmental group is targeting senators in a new advertising push against one of President Joe Biden’s Federal Energy Regulatory Commission nominees.

Friends of the Earth said Wednesday it launched a five-figure digital campaign against David Rosner, a day before he appears before the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee for a confirmation hearing.

Rosner is a FERC analyst currently working on detail for the committee under Chair Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.). Friends of the Earth is seeking to highlight Rosner’s positions, especially promoting liquefied natural gas exports when he worked for the Bipartisan Policy Center.


“David Rosner was a paid cheerleader for the LNG boom before it was fashionable,” Lukas Ross, deputy director of climate and energy, said in a statement. “We’re calling on Democrats not named Manchin to reject this nomination.”
