Trey’s heart for service is genuine. Though most members of Congress are quickly forgotten, Gowdy’s combination of character and skill will be remembered, though not replicated, for years to come. Trey made a real difference, not just an argument. Godspeed, Trey Gowdy. America is a better place because of your service and I’m a better person because of your friendship and example.
