This is unfortunate, but completely understandable news.
South Carolina Representative Trey Gowdy announced Tuesday he will not seek re-election but will return home to employ his skills in the justice system.
“Whatever skills I may have are better utilized in a courtroom than in Congress, and I enjoy our justice system more than our political system,” said Gowdy in a statement. “As I look back on my career, it is the jobs that both seek and reward fairness that are rewarding.”
His full statement is here:
There is a time to come and a time to go. This is the right time, for me, to leave politics and return to the justice system. Full statement here → pic.twitter.com/7I8AApqvs1

Nikki Haley nails it, per usual:
I always said the reason @TGowdySC was amazing at his job was bc he disliked politics so much. Trey, thank you for your impatience, sacrifice, and fight to make our country a more just place. SC and our country thank you for your service. I thank you for your friendship. ????????
