    Trey Gowdy Officially Endorses Marco Rubio

    Trey Gowdy Officially Endorses Marco Rubio


    South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy officially endorsed Marco Rubio on Monday, calling him the best candidate on national security and saying that the Florida senator is "effective" rather than "flashy."

    "I'm going to vote for Marco Rubio. National security and public safety are the most important issues to me. And there is nobody better on those two issues than Marco Rubio," Gowdy told the crowd at a town hall in Clinton, Iowa.

    The endorsement could give Rubio a boost in Gowdy's home state, the third state to hold a primary and one that many pundits see as a must-win for the Florida senator as he makes a play for the White House. But it could also be a boon for Rubio in Iowa, where Gowdy is joining him for two days of campaigning this week, lending the Florida senator considerable conservative credibility.

    Iowa's GOP caucuses have traditionally been dominated by grassroots and social conservatives, and the two GOP candidates who commonly draw the most conservative support — Sen. Ted Cruz and Donald Trump — have led most polls of the race there.

    Rubio typically polls a distant third in Iowa, and many conservatives still eye him warily for his involvement in a 2013 immigration reform effort that eventually failed. But Gowdy is beloved by the grassroots, in large part due to his position as chairman of the panel investigating the Benghazi attacks and his grilling of Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in that role.

    That could make his endorsement doubly valuable for Rubio, as Gowdy can highlight the Benghazi attacks — a key issue that Republicans believe has already damaged Clinton — on the trail. Indeed, the attacks came up on Monday when a questioner at Rubio's town hall asked about one of the Benghazi emails mentioned on conservative talk-radio, and Gowdy took the mic.

    "We're going to find out when happened and then I'm going to report it to you as soon as we can," Gowdy told the questioner.

    In his endorsement, Gowdy also touted Rubio's efforts to undermine Obamacare by seeking to defund the risk corridor provision in the law, calling him "the person who's doing the most" to combat the law.

    "He's not going to brag about it, he's not flashy which is unusual for politics in this day and age, but Marco Rubio and his focus on risk corridors may wind up being the undoing of the so called Affordable Care Act," Gowdy said.

    And he said that Rubio has the "ability to communicate our message of principled conservatism in a hopeful, aspirational, persuasive way."

    "It's ok to be hopeful that the message of principled conservatism can win again," he added. "I found that hope in a place that — if you'd told me 10 years ago I would find it, I wouldn't have believed you — in the son of a bartender, in the son of a housekeeper who know what it means to live the American dream."

    I am so disappointed with Trey who has shown his true colors . . . a traitorous amnesty loyalist.


    To support Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, or John Kasich is to support a continuance of Obama's illegal immigration tyranny which includes giving legal status and work permits to tens of millions who have invaded our borders, and panders to the Chamber of Commerce, the Club for Growth and our Global Governance Crowd

    One would have to wonder if it is really going to matter if any politician chooses to back any of the professional politicians running for President. It is obvious that few American's trust them anyway. So will it even matter that some elected official that has screwed the people that put them in office say's he agrees with candidates and supports them? I think they are going to be for a shock. American citizens are waking up and mad.

    Supporting Rubio will only prove harmful to Gowdy's own future political aspirations.

    Trey Gowdy deserves to be on the Cantor List for this.

    Seems quite clear that Trey Goudy is another sock puppet for the Chamber of Commerce, Club for Growth and our Global Governance crowd who have no allegiance to America or any nation and carry out the wishes of international corporate giants.


    To support Marco Rubio, or Jeb Bush, is to support our Global Governance Crowd and their WTO, NAFTA, GATT, and CAFTA, all used to circumvent America First trade policies, while fattening the fortunes of international corporate giants who have no allegiance to America or any nation.

    Well, the signals were out awhile back on Gowdy when he took over primary sponsorship of Marsha Blackburn's bill to authorize states to enforce US immigration law and then Gowdy has let it die in committee year after year. He wants to make a big deal out of Benghazi, that's fine, 4 Americans died that day, a terrible tragedy that warrants an investigation, but meanwhile back home on the ranch, thousands of innocent civilians are killed by illegal aliens every year that his bill would stop if states and local law enforcement were cut loose to enforce US immigration law without being hassled, sued or shut down by the Executive Branch.

    Yet, no action at all on this important bill that Marsha Blackburn first introduced several years ago. And when I tried to find it, I couldn't. What I found was a different bill listing Trey Gowdy as the sponsor with Marsha Blackburn as a co-sponsor with a whole bunch more "stuff" in it than the simple, clear, concise bill Marsha first introduced. So I think he stole that bill from her and pressured her into letting him handle it so stall it.

    Rubio's immigration reform - bribery by another name!

    It is saddening that Rubio's solution to deal with illegal entrants is to make millions upon millions of illegal entrants "legal" if they payoff the federal government, which does absolutely nothing to relieve the sufferings America citizens now experience from these migrants, whether legal or illegal.

    It is even more saddening that Trey Gowdy has endorsed a candidate who openly supports a proposal which allows illegals to bribe our federal government to acquire a "legal" status!


    The surest way for Obama to accomplish his fundamental transformation of America is to flood America with the poverty stricken and destitute populations of other countries.
