Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC 4)
Often mentioned as a conservative choice for the next Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rep. Trey Gowdy is a rising star in the Republican Party.
This one video should tell you all you need to know about Rep. Trey Gowdy and how amazing he is with his great prosecutorial “swag”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHHunn1X_Og
Rep. Trey Gowdy, while being provided with good committee memberships and seen as possibly succeeding Rep. Issa as chairman of the Oversight Committee, has not lost touch with the conservatives who helped him overthrow RINO Incumbent Inglis in 2010. Rep. Gowdy has stayed true to his conservative principles and says no to leadership quite often.
Rep. Gowdy voted against the Ryan-Murray Budget, the Budget Control Act of 2011, the Fiscal Cliff Deal, various debt ceiling increases, the Farm Bill Conference Report, and he supported the Amash NSA limitation amendment and several spending cut amendments including cuts to the Department of Defense. He is also a member of Rep. Amash’s Liberty Caucus and is a co-sponsor of the USA Freedom Act.
Conservative Tribune wrote about Rep. Gowdy best when they said:
Pelosi recently said that the GOP’s attempt to vote Eric Holder in contempt of Congress was an effort to “suppress the vote” because Holder was going after states for adopting election policies that he thought amounted to “voter suppression.”
Trey Gowdy had one response to that: “This is mind-numbingly stupid.”
A fresh voice and an excellent sophomore legislator, Rep. Trey Gowdy is a wonderful member of our Liberty Congress. LLPH is honored to name Rep. Trey Gowdy a Liberty General in our Liberty Congress and also re-endorse him for the 2014 midterm elections.
