The New York Times is reporting that some GOP House members want SC Representative Trey Gowdy to join the race for the next Majority Leader of the House
They report the movement began with members in the South Carolina congressional delegation.
We reached out for comment from Gowdy and a spokesperson sent the following response:
“Chairman Gowdy is focused on the Benghazi Committee and will serve in that capacity so long as the Committee exists. He appreciates the confidence of his colleagues and looks forward to tonight’s Conference discussion.”
