Congressman Terrence Brian “Trey” Gowdy will not seek re-election to the United States House of Representatives in 2018, according to one of his highest ranking aides. Gowdy, who has grown tired of the inactivity of his party to find justice for those who break the law has become too much for him to bear.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, the aide told LLOD correspondent Art Tubolls:
“Representative Gowdy is tired of the restrictions of Congress. He feels his talents would best be suited in a more…managerial role.”
Our analysts have determined that by Gowdy’s movements and behavior that he is unlikely to leave Washington anytime soon. He may be, rather, positioning to either take a run at the Presidency if Trump decides not to run in 2020 or more likely, to unseat Mike Pence as his running mate. There are reports from behind the scenes that Mike Pence may be bowing to pressure to return to Indiana before it falls into Democrat hands.
One way or the other it seems like we can expect bigger things from Mr. Gowdy in the near future. His seat, which will be secured with his endorsement alone, will continue to be a stronghold for conservative values.
