“Administrator McMahon has been a fierce advocate for America’s small businesses during her tenure as SBA Administrator,” Rubio said on Friday. “Under her stewardship, optimism among America’s small business has soared as a result of this administration’s pro-growth, pro-worker policies. I thank her for her exemplary service and wish her luck in her future endeavors.”

Rubio took over the committee back in January and he said he hoped Trump would pick someone like McMahon to lead SBA.

“Finding a successor as passionate as Administrator McMahon will be a challenge, but I stand ready to work with the administration to find someone who shares her vision and continues to bring real world business experience to the SBA,” Rubio said.
