BREAKING! Trey Gowdy to endorse…. THIS candidate!!! UPDATE: Campaign CONFIRMS!

TREY GOWDY ENDORSES MARTIN O’MALLEY!!! is a headline I’ll never write, I’m sure.

ON the other hand, it looks like our favorite congressional interrogator will be endorsing the GOP establishment candidate that isn’t low-energy.

BOOM! Ouch!! That stings.

Basically Gowdy’s statement is, “say hellooo to my little friend!!!”*

I have a feeling this is going to be very unpopular among many in the conservative base.

Wow. Dang.

OK – commenter contest!!! Who can spout the worst vitriol on the head of Trey Gowdy (with not too much cursing, and no death threats please)!??! Ready? GO!!!!

*that’s a scarface reference.


Guy says the campaign is confirming the report:

And here’s his write up on the scoop:

This is a good get for Team Rubio.  Gowdy is well regarded by the base, elements of which practically begged him to run for Speaker of the House.  But we’re in the midst of an unique campaign cycle in which traditional political rules don’t seem to apply — so will this have an impact, either in Iowa, or in Gowdy’s native South Carolina?  Stay tuned. At the very least, Rubio must be pleased to have secured the conservative Congressman’s backing, and to have boxed out his presidential competitors for Gowdy’s semi-splashy, potentially-impactful endorsement.

Apparently he’s getting a lot of pushback:

I would add this – if you’re a Trump guy who’s bashing on Gowdy, I don’t see how you would ever think he’d endorse el Trumpo. If you’re supporting other candidates, especially Ted Cruz, you might have a reasonable gripe.
