Rep. Trey Gowdy to retire from Congress

January 31, 2018

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., announced Wednesday he is retiring from Congress.

“I will not be filing for re-election to Congress nor seeking any other political or elected office; instead I will be returning to the justice system,” he said in a statement. “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.”

Gowdy was elected to serve South Carolina’s 4th Congressional District in 2010 after a career in the justice system, to which he plans to return.

The South Carolina congressman said he decided to announce his decision not to seek re-election to give those interested in running for his seat “ample time to reflect on the decision.”

    I will miss Trey Gowdy and think he is an Honorable man. We need more like him in our government. He will be sorely missed.

  • Original Anna says:

    Why are the Republicans who favor working with Trump’s goals resigning. All they are doing is giving the Democrats another chance at getting another seat.

  • Dee says:

    He will truly be missed ! I always liked him and thought he was an honest man standing up to the corruption ! Hopefully an outsider with Trumps views will step up and we can continue on the good path forward !
