WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Maureen Ohlhausen, a Republican commissioner at the Federal Trade Commission and former acting chief, is leaving the regulatory agency on Tuesday as her current term expires, the FTC said in a statement.

The Senate has already confirmed Republican Christine Wilson, a senior vice president for regulatory and international affairs at Delta Air Lines Inc (DAL.N), to replace Ohlhausen, who served as acting commissioner when U.S. President Donald Trump took office in January 2017 through May 2018.
