Senator Recommends Gowdy for Prestigious Position

Sen. Tim Scott will recommend to President Donald Trump that he nominate Rep. Trey Gowdy to become the next Supreme Court justice.

Trump said he will announce his nominee to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy next Monday, July 9.

“I’m going to recommend Trey Gowdy be one of the folks that I would have a strong recommendation for him serving on the Supreme Court,” Scott said in an interview on CNN Sunday. “I hope that the President will be open to that recommendation.”

Scott and Gowdy, both South Carolina Republicans, have become good friends during their time together in Washington and have co-authored a book on bringing Americans from different backgrounds together.
