What Trey Gowdy Did on Election Night Proves He’s Unstoppable

Trey Gowdy, the Republican House member from South Carolina rocketed to prominence based on his scathing investigation as head of the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

Tuesday he won re-election in South Carolina’s 4th Congressional District on Tuesday. This was no surprise. What was a surprise was just how resoundingly he did it.

According to Western JournalismGowdy won 85 percent of the vote in his district on Tuesday, easily fending off a challenge by Libertarian candidate Curtis McLaughlin, Jr.

That’s a fairly impressive win, and Gowdy boosters have been taking to Twitter to urge him to higher things.

While Gowdy was first elected to the House in 2010, his first real shot at prominence came when he was named the chairman of the House Select Committee investigating the Benghazi incident. Gowdy’s tenacious yet fair performance on the House Oversight Committee made him the ideal choice, and he’s made headlines and gained national support based on his excoriation of the White House’s failure to secure our embassy. (Which should answer once and for all Hillary Clinton’s question of what difference it makes: according to the American people, plenty.)

As of late, Gowdy has turned his acid gaze towards the Obama administration’s response (or lack thereof) to the Ebola crisis in Africa and the United States.

When Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary Dr. Nicole Lurie appeared before the House Oversight Committee, Gowdy asked, “So here we have a doctor, with an incredible background in medicine, who also happens to have planned for crises like Ebola, whose job description also includes communication strategy. So why in the hell did the president pick a lawyer to be the Ebola czar and not you?” Alas, America’s still waiting for a reasonable answer to that reasonable question.

While he has been a constant thorn in Obama’s side, Gowdy has tried to remain fair and above partisanship regarding the Benghazi investigation.  “I don’t want to appear naive, but I do hold out some hope that a few things left remaining in politics, or in our society, can be above politics,” Gowdy said in July. “People who have worked with me in the past and the people on the other side of the aisle who I work with now, I don’t think they are at all surprised this is the approach that I am taking… My goal is to find out what happened.”
