Congressman Trey Gowdy

Representing South Carolina’s 4th District, Trey Gowdy entered Congress with a resolute commitment to the conservative principles that have guided him throughout his years in public service. At the core of those principles lies a firm belief in a limited government that inspires trust and demands accountability. In May of 2014, Representative Gowdy was named as the Chairman of the “House Select Committee on the Events Surrounding the 2012 Terrorist Attack in Benghazi.” Gowdy continues to serve on the House Committees on Ethics, Oversight and Government Reform, and Judiciary, where he also serves as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security. In these capacities, Representative Gowdy has fought to highlight facts, uphold the Constitution, rein in the ever-expanding scope of the federal government, and restore America’s trust with a renewed spirit of honesty, fairness and reason.
