13. Hopefully a majority. But it could be a 2-2 tie on day one.

It has always been expected that, consistent with tradition, Pai would leave the FCC effective inauguration day. One of the other Republican seats, currently held by Michael O'Rielly, will become vacant as of the end of the year. However, between now and then, the Senate could confirm O'Rielly's replacement. If that happens, the FCC will have two Republicans and two Democrats until such time as a Democrat is confirmed to fill Pat's remaining term.
