Trey Gowdy Trying to Recover From His Unpopular Rubio Endorsement, Says This About Trump

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) on Monday pledged that he will support the GOP’s presidential nominee in 2016, including if it’s Donald Trump.

“I’m going to vote for the Republican nominee, period,” the chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi said on “The Mike Gallagher Show.”


“I’m going to vote for the Republican nominee because anyone on our side is better than anyone on their side.”

“I am so tired of having [Democrats] control the executive branch that I am going to vote for whoever is the Republican nominee.”

Gowdy’s remarks follow his endorsement last week of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) for the White House. He said Republicans need to focus on the larger goal in 2016, even if they disagree over who their nominee should be. (Read more from “Trey Gowdy Just Revealed Who He Is Voting for in 2016” HERE)

    Say oops, Gowdy. OOPS !

    • ijohnc1

      Everyone is entitled to their own selection, but this is reminiscent of the Rubio joining the gang of eight. it may cost Gowdy his credibility.

      • RWS

        It already has.

          For me too.

    Gowdy’s one of our Republican Members who is truly an honest conservative with true conservative values. I support him and am not bothered by his support of Rubio or any other Republican running as ANY of them could and would do a better job than anyone the Democrats have to offer. But having said that, I’m not convinced anyone other than Trump can save the country a year from now.

      Rubio would be just like John Boehner and Paul Ryan….he would keep the borders open to “his” people, and the rest of America will get to foot the bill to feed, house, clothe, medicate and educate them so big business gets to pay them less and it is a win win for big business, because when they cannot support their families, the tax payers get the bill, not the big business who profits from them.

        I share the same concerns. The country is broke (worse – $20T in the hold with annual deficits for years and huge unfunded liabilities). This will only be exacerbated as the use and value of the dollar side.

  • ijohnc1

    He must have a Ryan bike, you know the type, it peddles backwards.

      They are called “fence turtles”….turtles sitting on the fence and they fall to either side of the parties. What we now have in Washington is a sewer filled with them…we have a uniparty (both Democrats and Republicans are the members along with the corrupt, lying Supremes…, their only representation is to themselves and their next election cycle so they can continue to screw the tax payers and put more money in their corrupt back pockets….the entire system needs a good rotor-rooting so the backup of sewage drains out.

      He talked a great game when his committee was approved. But I’ve had the same question since the first Benghazi hearing, “Since your FOIA’s are going nowhere, why have’n’t you sued the DOJ?” Then, I joined Judicial Watch. It may be the best $35 I have spent as they are (IMHO) responsible for almost all of the info released on Hilary’s emails and server.

      I kind lost faith in him, as I am not sure how much of his soul has been claimed by DC politics.

  • wandamurline

    I cannot believe that Gowdy supports Rubio….even if he doesn’t like The Donald, he would have been better off with the conservatives in America had he endorsed Cruz….Rubio is another Democrat in a Republican suit….he has sided and voted with the Democrats….he has shifted away from the tea parties and their platforms…the very ones that put him in office….how quickly they change once elected….but that can change again and he can be replaced with another conservative his next election cycle, so Florida start looking for a true conservative Republican to take Rubio (the gang of 8 traitor) out and replace him. I am ashamed and dismayed with Gowdy’s endorsement….now I question Gowdy as a true conservative and I have always like him.

      Unfortunately, Florida is the State that brought you Rubio and Jeb. The establishment frowns on true conservative thought down here. Colonel Allen West and the 6th District Congressman Ron DeSantis would both make conservative Senator from Florida a reality, however the establishment will pick another moderate like Jeb or Marco.

    • deanbob

      Actually, when the Tea Party supported Rubio for Senate in 2010, he was/seemed more conservative and was head and shoulders above his competition. I think he was bamboozled by the old guard in the senate. However, I think Ted Cruz is the best candidate.

  • Dowhatsrigh

    Well I am begining to think that Trey Gowdy is just another lying politician. How come Hillary had not been brought up on charges? We have less than a year to go and still no charges. It is just like I said the day they started this “investigation.” It is all show and no go. They have no intention of doing anything about anything. They will wait until Obama’s term is over and then drop everything saying it is now a moot point.

  • B33r1sg00d

    Because so many Democrats vote Republican…you liberals are the dumbest posters on the planet…you don’t employ logic…you employ your hatred for your fathers…who hate their punk kid and are ashamed of you.

    Rino boy trey!

  • Armycombatvet

    Hey Trey it’s getting a little hot under the Rino spotlight, hmm! In one stupid statement you blew any credibility you had. Just another empty suit, a bloviating one but empty nonetheless! All the world’s a stage right Trey and you have succeeded in outing yourself. Damage done, foot in mouth disease and the results thereof are indelible.

  • carlosperdue

    Trey Gowdy voted for Comrade Hussein’s TOP SECRET “free trade” Trojan Horse, and for massive increases in our already culturally & politically suicidal immigration levels. Endorsing Super Marco is compelling evidence that Gowdy is a Chamberboy – a Waterboy for the “U.S.” Chamber of Commerce.
