Trey Gowdy Just Dropped A Bombshell: He Won’t Seek Re-Election
House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy says he won’t run for re-election.
This is bad news for the American people. He is a true bulldog for justice, morals, values & downright honesty…
South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy dropped a bombshell on Wednesday, announcing that he is not seeking re-election.
There is a time to come and a time to go. This is the right time, for me, to leave politics and return to the justice system. Full statement here → pic.twitter.com/7I8AApqvs1

In a statement, Gowdy said he plans to leave politics altogether to return to working in the justice system.
“Whatever skills I may have are better utilized in a courtroom than in Congress, and I enjoy our justice system more than our political system. As I look back on my career, it is the jobs that both seek and reward fairness that are most rewarding,” said Gowdy, a former assistant U.S. attorney.
“There is no perfect time to make this announcement,” he continued. “But with filing opening in six weeks, it is important to give the women and men in South Carolina who might be interested in serving ample time to reflect on the decision.” Read more at TDC.
