“Trey wants to go back to South Carolina, and God bless him for that,” Fleming said on C-SPAN. When asked if that’s what Gowdy has told other Republicans, Fleming confirmed it.

“At the end of his term, yes,” he said. “He plans to go back home, and he wants to finish his work on the Benghazi special committee. But he loves South Carolina and he loves his family, and he wants to go back and spend the rest of his life there.”

“He’ll be sorely missed,” he added.
