Duncan Statement on Gowdy Announcement


Congressman Jeff Duncan (SC-03) released the following statement after Congressman Trey Gowdy (SC-04) announced he would not seek reelection:

“Trey has been a great friend and colleague since we first came to the House together back in 2011, and his retirement from Congress is a blow to the entire institution. Trey is an enormously talented interrogator and jurist who has helped reinvigorate the critically important oversight responsibilities of the legislative branch. He is the very embodiment of fairness and thoughtful deliberation. Trey will be missed both by the South Carolina delegation and by his constituents in the Upstate whom he served with great distinction. However, I know Trey will be just as successful and impactful in his next endeavor.”
