Who is Trey Gowdy? Period. And why should we care?
The Rubio campaign just got a major win- the endorsement of the House’s most principled conservative:
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) is expected to endorse Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) for president when he campaigns with him in Iowa next week, Townhall.com reported Saturday.
The influential South Carolina lawmaker will attend town hall rallies on Tuesday and Wednesday during Rubio’s three-day tour through the important caucus state, the Rubio campaign said in a press release Saturday.
“Marco is a rock solid conservative and a strong leader we can trust,” Gowdy said in an accompanying statement. “I look forward to campaigning in Iowa with him, and introducing my good friend to voters across the state.”
A Rubio campaign aide told CNN that Gowdy will offer Rubio his “full support,” but stopped short of saying it will be an official endorsement for president.
Gowdy will make appearances at town halls in Clinton, Sioux City, Pella, North Newton and Boone.
The three-term representative is best known for leading the House investigation into the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack, in which he presided over testimony from former secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Gowdy is a favorite of GOP grassroots, but will this be enough to sell those voters on Rubio, who can’t seem to shake his vote for amnesty? Don’t bet on it.
